About the Tomb
QV 84 is located on south side of the north branch of the main Wadi, between QV 50 and 51. The tomb is very shallow and unfinished with the west and south walls being partly cut. According to Christian Leblanc, the tomb was cut in the 20th Dynasty and construction was stopped because of poor rock quality in the area.
This site was used during the following period(s):
The south wall of QV 84 shows deterioration from weathering. Several engravings on the rock surface were observed by the GCI-SCA. Exposure to water and weathering damage and the poor quality of rock that the tomb is cut into has largely contributed to its deterioration. It has been recommended by the GCI-SCA to leave the tomb as is, since it is only a shallow trench.
