A present-day view of the Valley of the Kings, looking east. At the center is KV 5, tomb of the sons of Ramses II, and to its right is the tomb of Ramses IX and the modern rest house. At left, in a small wadi (valley), lie tombs KV 3 (sons of Ramses III), KV 46 (Yuya and Thuya), and KV 4 (Ramses XI). Photo: Francis Dzikowski, © 1999, The Theban Mapping Project.
