Tomb KV52 is located in the Valley of the Kings, in Egypt. It contained a mummified monkey,[1] and is probably associated with the nearby tomb of Amenhotep II (KV35).

Recent (winter 2009/10) excavations in this area[2] by an SCA team attempting to relocate tombs KV50, KV51, KV52 and KV 53 revealed 18th Dyn blue painted pottery, tools and hieratic and figured ostraca which included :

  • a sketch of a seated queen presenting an offering
  • depictions of sexual scenes with woman and animals
  • cartouches of Rameses II.
