The site of Medinet Habu was excavated from 1926-1933, under Uvo Hölscher (1878-1963. This included the excavation of several levels dating to the Third Intermediate Period, including examining the chapels of the God’s Wives of Amun and the discovery of burials there. This included the burial of Ankhshepenwepet, which had been discovered in the course of examining the mortuary chapel of the God’s wife of Amun, Shepenwepet I, the Dynasty 23 God’s wife of Amun, daughter of Osorkon III.
Ankhshepenwepet was a singer of the temple of Amun and since she was buried in the vicinity of the Shepenwepet I’s chapel, it was assumed that she was an attendant of Shepenwepet I. The burial of Ankhshepenwepet took place early on in the next dynasty, Kush*te Dynasty 25. Although her tomb had been robbed, the excavations found four alabaster canopic jars, faience shabtis, and two scarabs, including one of lapis, which would have been very expensive as well as one that evidently was stone covered with gold leaf.
