About the Tomb
QV 83 is a small tomb on the north side of the main Wadi, adjacent to the paved path and just east of the bridge that leads to QV 66. The tomb seems to be incomplete, as the shaft leads to a small, roughly hewn chamber unlike others in the Valley. The shaft entrance has a modern, cemented masonry surround with a metal grill.
The tomb was constructed in the 18th Dynasty and it is not certain whether it was completed or left unfinished.
This site was used during the following period(s):
The small chamber and shaft were partially filled with trash at the time of of the GCI-SCA assessment. According to the GCI-SCA, the rock of the small tomb seems stable with no apparent surface deterioration or large fractures. This tomb does, however, lie adjacent to the main flood path and is susceptible to flooding.
