The tomb lay near KV35, the tomb of Amenhotep II, and was entered by a shaft that leads to a small chamber containing a destroyed burial of the eighteenth dynasty. The floor was covered in limestone chips and broken objects which included a mud seal from a papyrus and shattered coffin fragments.

The unwrapped and broken mummy of the owner of the tomb was found with three inscribed mud bricks and a number of ushabti giving the name of the tomb owner as Amenemopet.
