KV64 is an unexcavated, possible tomb located in the Valley of the Kings, near Luxor, Egypt. As of August 2008, when its discovery was announced, nothing of its layout, decoration or owner is known. It is located close to the tomb of Merenptah and appears to be in the Ramesside style.

Radar anomaly

The designation KV64 was first used to refer to an anomaly that was discovered by the team of researchers from the Amarna Royal Tombs Project [ [http://www.valleyofthekings.org/vofk/default.htm ARTP website] ; Announcement of the discovery] (ARTP), led by Nicholas Reeves in the autumn of 2000. The team undertook a geophysical survey using ground-penetrating radar from 1998 to 2002 in the central area of Valley of the Kings. As per the information revealed by the team so far, two such anomalies were pinpointed by the radar survey and one of them turned out as KV63. Nicholas Reeves announced on 28 July 2006 that he believed the second anomaly to be a tomb as well.

However, on March 25, 2008, in an interview on Egyptian television, Zahi Hawass said that an Egyptian excavation team was looking for the tomb of Ramesses VIII between KV7 and KV8.

These rumors proved to be true, and this has been designated as KV64.cite web|url=http://guardians.net/spotlite/spotlite-hawass-2008.htm|title=Spotlight Interview: 2008|author=Zahi Hawass|publisher=The Plateau: Official Website for Dr. Zahi Hawass|accessdate=2008-08-15]
