KV-63 is the first new discovery in the Valley of the Kings since Howard Carter uncovered the tomb of King Tutankhamun in 1922. Not used as a tomb, KV-63 is in fact an embalmer’s cache from the New Kingdom, containing several cons and many items used in mummication and burial. This presentation covers some of the work done by Dr. Otto Schaden and his crew in the seven years since the discovery and initial study of KV-63.

The highlands of SW Bolivia, NW Argentina, and N Chile are the most arid part of the Andes. In this area, opportunities for human settlement concentrate in deep river valleys, piedmont oases, and to the lowest basins of the Altiplano (highplateau). This environmental structure has resulted in a long-term pattern of discontinuous settlement, with relatively small populations concentrated in favorable areas, separated by vast expanses of unpopulated mountain heights and deserts.
