Thebes, the Ramesseum: burials

The storerooms in the Ramesseum (see a plan) were used in the Third Intermediate Period as burial place. Small decorated chapels were built. These tombs are part of an extensive Third Intermediate and Late Period cemetery which developed near and behind the mortuary temples of the New Kingdom (about 1550-1069 BC).
