Description The chapter give anthropological and paleopathological study of skeletal remains excavated during the seasons 1999-2005 in the two quite separate and markedly distinct areas of the Memphite tomb of Horemheb, comander-in-chief of Tutankhamun and later the Kings second succesor on the Egyptian throne. In 16 poor individual graves and two collective burial mounds of New Kingdom date to the south of the tomb, minimally 57 individuals were disclosed. Bones of at least 49 individuals could be identified in the so-called Tia deposit. Pathological changes were found from nearly all main categories of diseases, except for malignant tumours. A relatively high frequency of dental caries has been found in the permanent dentition.
