Child Tombs in KV 40


The tomb which was unmarked and only identified as a depression in the ground was known as KV 40 (Kings Valley 40):

The remains of royal children and members of the royal entourage have been found in an unmarked tomb in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt. The tomb, KV 40, was only identifiable as a depression in the ground before excavations began, but the dig revealed five subterranean chambers filled with artefacts including textiles, wooden burial equipment, large numbers of pottery fragments, as well as the mummified remains of at least 50 adults and children.
