Dr Susanne Bickel is Professor of Egyptology at the University of Basel, Switzerland, and Director of the University of Basel Kings’ Valley Project.
For ten years now, the University of Basel Kings’ Valley Project has been exploring a number of undecorated tombs in the Theban royal necropolis. This research led to the discovery of the so far unknown tomb KV 64 which illustrates the long and manifold use history of the Valley of the Kings. Investigations in the heavily looted tomb KV 40 yield important new insight into the community of people who were allowed a burial in this particularly sacred area.
