Tomb KV26, located in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, was visited by James Burton, and then probably by Victor Loret.

Nothing is known about its occupant or occupants, but it is believed to be an 18th Dynasty tomb because of its similarities to others of that period. Although it is exceptionally short, with a total length of less than 12 metres, it has not yet been fully cleared or excavated.
