Psusennes began his reign by relocating many of the monuments from the Rammeside capitol of Per-ramesses to the new capitol at Tanis.
Psusennes was buried in an intact tomb in Tanis which also contained a second chamber for his sister/wife. Later, Amenemope's mummy was also placed here, which leads many to believe that this may have been a cache for the mummies of the 21st dynasty.
A sarcophagus containing an "old man" was found in the tomb. The outer sarcophagus, made of pink granite, may have belonged originally to Merneptah. Many treasures were found in the tomb.
