The tomb complexes K93.11/93.12 in Dra’ Abu el-Naga/Western Thebes (Luxor)

The investigation of two late Ramesside tomb-temples and their contextualization in the Theban ritual landscape.

During the course of six excavation campaigns (2006-2011), a large area of the tomb complex K93.12 was excavated and documented including the shaft and the underground burial complex. One of the central questions, namely whether the High Priest Amenhotep was buried here, could be answered positively: in the underground complex, the remains of his plundered burial assemblage consisting, amongst other things, of over 20 wooden shabtis that were inscribed with his name and titles, fragments of his wooden coffin as well as ceramic vessels bearing his name were found (figs. 7 & Cool.

The plan of K93.12, i.e. both the form of the rock architecture as well as the design of the courtyards, is extremely similar to its neighbouring complex K93.11 and in some respects identical. The whole complex was planned and laid out as a double tomb complex. On the basis of the archaeological and structural features, the development of both rock-cut tombs and their adjacent courtyard terrace can be dated to the early 18th dynasty (ca. 1500 BC). It is highly probable that the double tomb complex was intended for a royal individual. A number of indications support an attribution of the northern tomb, K93.11, to the king Amenhotep I, who was worshipped as a god in Thebes after his death. Around 400 years later in the 20th dynasty, both structures were reused by the High Priest of Amun Ramsesnakht and his son Amenhotep and the courtyards became the site of their monumental tomb-temples. One reason for their choice of this site could be – in addition to the ritual-topographical relevance – its particular sacredness, obtained by the association with the deified Amenhotep I.
