In 2018, researchers found several sarcophagi and mummies in the Luxor tomb, TT28, dating back to the Ramesside Period. While archaeologists have known this tomb existed, most of it has never been scientifically excavated.Archaeologists spent five months clearing some 300 metres (984 feet) of debris before they could access TT28

Hieroglyphs on one of the newly discovered sarcophagi indicate that the object belongs to Thaw InkhetIf, who was the overseer of a mummification shrine located near Thebes. He held a number of titles and was a worshiper of the goddess Mut.

Thaw Inkhetif's tomb was elaborate decorated a mural in bright colours on the ceiling

Studies

Thaw InkhetIf's mummy is well preserved. Future tests are planned.
