This article describes the ever-changing use of the Valley of the Kings and the cultural connotations associated with the landscape. Whilst cosmological associations shaped the early use of this area, factors such as territoriality and hegemonial traditions gradually took precedence. The economic use characteristic of the 21st Dynasty remained a privilege of the ruling class; memory of the sacrality of the site presumably motivated the burials of the 22nd Dynasty.
