KV62 is the tomb of Tutankhamun, a pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of ancient Egypt, who ruled from c. 1332 to 1323 BC1. It is located in the Valley of the Kings, a valley in Egypt where many pharaohs and nobles were buried. KV62 was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, an archaeologist who was sponsored by Lord Carnarvon. It was the first royal tomb to be found intact in the valley, and it contained a wealth of valuable antiquities, such as coffins, furniture, clothing, jewellery, and Tutankhamun’s famous golden funerary mask. The tomb attracted worldwide attention and became the most famous discovery in the history of Egyptology.

The tomb consists of four chambers and an entrance staircase and corridor. The chambers are:

The Antechamber: This is the first chamber that Carter entered. It was filled with various objects, such as chariots, beds, chests, stools, and baskets. Some of the objects had seals with Tutankhamun’s name on them, confirming his identity.

The Burial Chamber: This is the main chamber where Tutankhamun’s sarcophagus and mummy were located. The chamber was decorated with scenes from the Book of the Amduat, a funerary text that describes the journey of the sun god through the underworld. The sarcophagus was made of quartzite and had a cartouche-shaped lid. Inside the sarcophagus were three nested coffins, the innermost one being made of solid gold and weighing about 110 kg (240 lb). The mummy was adorned with various jewels and amulets, and wore the golden mask that is now one of the most iconic symbols of ancient Egypt.
The Treasury: This is a small chamber that was guarded by two statues of Anubis, the god of mummification and the underworld. The chamber contained many precious items, such as shrines, vessels, statues, model boats, and canopic jars. The canopic jars were used to store the internal organs of Tutankhamun after they were removed during the mummification process. The most remarkable item in this chamber was a miniature gold shrine that contained four gilded wooden figures depicting Tutankhamun being embraced by different goddesses.
The Annex: This is another small chamber that was packed with more objects, such as food, wine, cosmetics, games, weapons, and tools. Some of these objects were probably meant to provide Tutankhamun with comfort and entertainment in the afterlife. The chamber also contained some items that belonged to other members of Tutankhamun’s family, such as his father Akhenaten and his grandmother Tiye.
