Pleiades

The tomb was discovered by the archaeological team from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston led by George Reisner in 1925. The sarcophagus was found to be empty in 1927 although a number of grave goods were in a good state of preservation. The tomb itself seems to be a secondary burial for the queen, who may have been originally buried at Dahshur. Various scholarly interpretations of the tomb and the archaeological sequence exist in the published literature.
