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).
