Roxanne and Bill Wilson have financed and maintained the KV-63 website since 2006 and will continue to do so into the future.
We are honored to perpetuate this historical event and record of the KV-63 discovery and the efforts made by many dedicated individuals.

Steins range in volume from .03 liter (1 oz.) to 32 liter (8.4 gal.), the typical volume being .5 (1/2) liter (16.9 oz.).
The following day, March 24th, KV-10 and KV-63 were locked and sealed, signaling the end of the season.
Afterwards, there was some last minute packing to attend to and the post-season report to prepare.
On the evening of March 28th, Archie Chubb and I left for Cairo. Magdy el Ghandour, Director of Foreign Missions, to deliver copies of the season report CDs and late that morning met with Dr. A few days later I was back home in cold and windy Chicago.
