New Kingdom, Dynasty 18, Amenhotep II
Tomb 35 was the tomb of Amenhotep II. Its plan includes several innovations, including: a chamber off the deep well shaft; a two-level rectangular burial chamber, the upper part of which was filled with pillars and the lower part with the sarcophagus. The painted decoration was meant to look like an unrolled sheet of papyrus. In the Third Intermediate Period, Tomb 35 was used for the re-burial of fifteen royal mummies, which were discovered by excavators in 1898.
