I have updated my website about QV44.
The hyperlinks are OK now and the annoying advertisements are blocked.
You can see the updated website on
Thanks for visiting my updated website about the tomb of Prince Khaemwaset in the Valley of the Queens in Luxor/Egypt

Em Hotep and welcome!

After the Pharaohs Golden Parade on April 3, 2021, the mummies were transferred to the Museum of Egyptian Civilization.

An interesting full size photo:

Nit is off to the right, caught in 'by accident' of the photographer.

We can make out the glyphs, "Nit, Great Mother of the Gods, Queen of Heaven."

(Edited to add: Oooh, I found a better photo:

("kairoinfo4u" is best photographer on flickr, he takes such high res photos that all the details are captured.)

kairoinfo4u is a Dutch professional photographer who spends most of the year in Egypt :)
I can only confirm that he takes beautiful pictures of various temples and tombs in Egypt.

Between 2002 and 2013 I stayed every year for 14 days to a month at Hotel Sonesta St.George in Luxor.
The Japanese restaurant in this hotel was unique in Luxor at the time.
Renowned Egyptologist Kent Weeks often dined at the Japanese restaurant Myako.
The hotel manager, who was aware of my research in the Valley of the Queens, surprised me in 2009 by introducing me to Kent Weeks.
During an interesting conversation with the renowned Egyptologist, I had the audacity to ask him if I could visit KV5.
Two days after our conversation I visited KV5 with Professor Kent Weeks as a guide.
KV5 is the tomb of Pharaoh Ramesses II and his more than 100 sons and the exploration of this tomb was started by Kent Weeks and his wife.
According to Kent Weeks, however, it would be years before the grave could be opened to the public.
Without a doubt, KV5 will be the most visited of all the tombs in the Valley of the Kings in the future.
More information about KV5

Em hotep and welcome!

Which are your favorite tombs?  (I'm partial to those of Horemheb and Nefertari. (I've never visited, but enjoy seeing photos others have taken.)  The images are good for inspiring art.)

My favorite tombs in the Valley of the Kings are : Ramesses VI (KV9),Horemheb (KV57),Seti I (KV17),
Tausert and Seknakht and Ramesses I (KV16).
In the Valley of the Queens my favorite tombs are:Khaemwaset(QV44) and Nefertari(QV66).
I visited QV66 in 2011 and in 2013.
In 2011 and 2013, I paid LE 500 each time for a 10-minute visit.
Paying LE 500 for a 10 minute visit was not worth it as the tomb of Nefertari has been largely destroyed.
In my opinion a visit to QV66 was much too expensive at the time.
My favorite tombs in Deir el-Medina are: Pasedu(TT3) and Sennedjem (TT1).

Soon I must update my website because many hyperlinks are no longer correct because some websites have stopped or contain too many annoying advertisements
