The Tomb of Khaemwaset (QV 44)

The Tomb of Khaemwaset (QV 44)
Tomb Khaemwaset Gaspard
Welcome to my website, depicting the exterior and interior of the tomb of Prince Khaemwaset in the Valley of the Queens in Luxor, Egypt.
Please enjoy your visit to this extraordinary tomb.
In March 2004, I started a thorough exploration of the Valley of the Queens in Luxor, Egypt.
During my exploration of the valley, I became especially interested in the tomb of Prince Khaemwaset.
Over the years my curiosity about this tomb grew, due to the extraordinary beauty of the murals, which have been incredibly well preserved.
The prince was a son of Pharaoh Ramesses III.
His mummified remains were entombed in QV 44.
QV 44 means that the tomb of Khaemwaset was the 44th tomb to be discovered in the Valley of the Queens.
My motivation in creating this website is to reproduce the extraordinary beauty and craftsmanship of the murals in this grave.
This website depicts the exterior and interior of the tomb of Prince Khaemwaset in detail and illustrates the overwhelming beauty of the tomb with detailed pictures.
