KV57

   The tomb of Horemheb in the Valley of the Kings. It was discovered by Edward Ayrton in February 1906. It is one of the finest tombs in the valley, with most of the painting preserved, apart from scenes in sketch outline. It is the first tomb with painted raised relief instead of the painted plaster walls of earlier Dynasty 18 tombs. The king’s mummy has not been recovered. ABritish expedition is currently reexcavating material in the tomb.
