KV55

   One of the most controversial tombsin the Valley of the Kings. It was discovered by Edward Ayrton in 1907. It had remained largely intact and contained a skeleton in a wooden coffin and other funerary equipment, some inscribed with the name of Queen Tiy. The names on the coffin had been erased. The body has been scientifically examined and proved to be that of a young male. It has been tentatively identified as that of Smenkhkare, but some believe that it is the body of Akhenaten, although the age does not fit. The tomb was evidently a reburial brought from Amarna. The material is now in the Cairo Egyptian Museum. The tomb was recleared by Lyla Pinch Brock from 1993–1996.
