TT8 – Tomb of Kha and Wife Merit

Kha was an Architect, a Foreman or Overseer of Works, and a Chief of the Great Place during the 18th and 19th Dynasty switch between Periods. He worked for Pharaoh’s Amenhotep II, Tuthmose IV and Amenhotep III constructing various building projects for them within the scope of his roles.

His Tomb, in Deir el Medina, was found intact but now is somewhat damaged, especially by the removal of the Pyramidion from its roof!
