The report is no longer "unofficial" Cool ... University of Basel Kings' Valley Project :

Quote:
"... Underneath the thick layer of debris on which the 22nd dynasty burial was placed were found remains of the original 18th dynasty burial. This first burial had been thoroughly looted. Most of the objects had been robbed or were left behind in a very fragmentary state. The coffin, parts of the canopic equipment, pottery, and possibly pieces of furniture were missing. At the bottom of the debris fragments of three limestone canopic jars and two lids in the shape of human heads were found, as well as fragments of pottery and small pieces of glass (Fig. 5) and leather. It remains uncertain whether a small wooden tag naming a royal daughter along with wooden splinters belonging to a piece of furniture with the name of king Amenhotep III stem originally from this tomb or whether these elements entered accidentely with the debris filling. Similar inscribed fragments were found near the tomb of Siptah by Howard Carter and by the Basel team of Mission Siptah – Ramses X, as well as by our team during this season outside tomb KV 29. This dispersion of material seems to result from looting in antiquity.

Along the north wall on the floor were remains of a mummy without linen bandages. This badly broken mummy is probably the original first owner of the tomb. ..."

There was a nice write-up on KV64 in the latest KMT, and helpfully, it was set in context of the general investigation of the non-royal tombs in that area of the VoK.

I love that magazine. My only complaint is that it's a quarterly instead of a monthly. Very Happy
