In East Valley, in 1922, Howard Carter found what was labeled KV62, The Tomb of   Tutankhamun , while many of the tombs and chambers in the area were sacked by thieves, this one was intact and stocked full with treasures.

KV62 was the last large find until early 2006 when KV63 was excavated; KV64 was later found using radar technology. These recent discoveries are as fascinating as the ones found earlier in the 20th century, though KV64 has yet to be excavated itself.

New finds in the Valley of the Kings show that KV63 is not a tomb, but a storage chamber, as none of the seven coffins hold mummies; instead, there are clay pots used in the mummification process. However, the information has not yet been verified by the Supreme Council of Antiquities, as the find was not properly presented before the Council before sending out news of the find.
