The Search For The Lost Tomb KV5

Overview:
Archaeologist Kent Weeks, following a survey in the Valley of the Kings, sets out on the trail of one of Egypt's lost tombs numbered KV5.

The entrance to KV 5 was still visible to James Burton who visited the Valley in 1825. where he noted the name of Rameses II carved in the entrance. Burton's workmen dug a channel through the first three debris-filled chambers, but he saw no objects or wall decorations and abandoned the work

Howard Carter uncovered the doorway in 1902, and then immediately re-buried it, thinking the tomb was small, undecorated, and of no importance

Since which time, and up to the Theban Mapping Project in the 1990’s, the tomb’s location was unknown. This is the story of Kent Weeks’ search and initial excavations in KV5.

This was originally taped from BBC2 to SVHS and has been subsequently transferred to DVD. The Quality is therefore slightly reduced - most particularly at the start

The tomb may originally have been an Dynasty 18 tomb (consisting of chambers 1, 2, and part of 3) usurped by Rameses II as the burial place for several of his principal sons. Still under excavation, the tomb has so far revealed 121 corridors and chambers. Since the tomb appears to have several bilaterally symmetrical sections, it is likely that the number of chambers will increase to 150 or more in subsequent field seasons. KV 5 itself is the largest tomb in the Valley; pillared chamber 3 is the largest chamber of any tomb in the Valley of the Kings.

At least six royal sons are known to have been interred in KV 5. Since there are more than twenty representations of sons carved on its walls, there may have been that many sons interred in the tomb.

The tomb is decorated with scenes from the Opening of the Mouth ritual (pillared chamber 3) and representations of the king, princes and deities (chamber 1, chamber 2, gate 3, pillared chamber 3, corridor 7, chamber 8, gate 9, corridor 12).
