WIKIPEDIA articles Tomb KV5 is a subterranean, rock-cut tomb in the
Valley of the Kings. It belonged to the sons of Ramesses II. Though
KV5 was partially excavated as early as 1825, its true extent was
discovered by Dr Kent R. Weeks and his exploration team. The tomb
is now known to be the largest in the Valley of the Kings. Dr
Week's discovery in 1995 is widely considered the most dramatic in
the valley since the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922.
Standing near the entrance to the Valley, over the centuries it
suffered the fate of other low-lying tombs, which was to be filled
with rubble washed down in the flash floods that accompany
thunderstorms over the Valley. In addition, it was robbed in
antiquity. The tomb was examined several times once exploration of
the Valley in relatively modern times started, first in 1825 (by
James Burton), and later in 1902 (by Howard Carter, discoverer of
the tomb of Tutankhamun, who used KV5 only as a dumping ground).
However, they were not able to penetrate past the first few rooms,
and thus saw nothing unusual about the tomb.
