Location  East Valley of the Kings

Tomb KV51 is located in the Valley of the Kings, in Egypt. It contained the burials of three monkeys, one baboon, one ibis and three ducks, and is probably associated with nearby tomb of Amenhotep II (KV35).

Recent (winter 2009/10) excavations in this area by an SCA team attempting to relocate tombs KV50, KV51, KV52 and KV 53 revealed 18th Dyn blue painted pottery, tools and hieratic and figured ostraca which included :

  • a sketch of a seated queen presenting an offering
  • depictions of sexual scenes with woman and animals
  • cartouches of Rameses II.
