The Theban Tomb TT282 is located in Dra' Abu el-Naga', part of the Theban Necropolis, on the west bank of the Nile, opposite to Luxor. It is the burial place of the Ancient Egyptian Anhernakht, also called Nakht, who lived during the 19th dynasty, during the reign of Ramesses II.

Anhernakht was the son of Minnakht and Tanedjemet. His paternal grandfather was Pennesutawy who served as a Captain of troops and Governor of the South Lands during the reigns of Ramesses I and Sethi I. Anhernakht followed in his father and grandfather's footsteps. He served as royal scribe, fan-bearer on the right of the king, overseer of the Southern Lands and head of bowmen (of Kush).[2]
