The Eastern part of the Valley of the Kings, shown in this map, contains most of the royal tombs of the New Kingdom (17th-20th Dynasties). Few of the tombs, however, contained mummies when they were rediscovered in the early 19th century.Due to extensive tomb robbery in ancient times. most of the royal mumies had been moved to either of two locations: Tomb KV35 in the Valley of the Kings; or Tomb DB-320 in nearby Deir el-Bahri.
