Following months of investigations, researchers studying King Tutankhamun’s tomb believe there is a 90% chance it does contain at least one, if not two, hidden chambers.

Radar scans of the tomb in the ancient necropolis of Luxor have revealed two possible rooms, and they’re likely to contain remains believed to belong to Queen Nerfertiti, Egypt’s antiquities minister Mamdouh el-Damaty said.

If confirmed, Mr El-Damaty added ‘it could be the discovery of the century’ and that it’s ‘very important for Egyptian history and the history of the world’.

This image is a more detail shot of the presentation slide. The dark blue border shows the walls that were scanned. The area alongside the antechamber is believed to be empty, while Area 1 contains metal and organic material, and Area 2 contains just organic material. This organic material could be human remains

The announcement follows recent infrared thermography tests that revealed one area of the northern wall was a different temperature to others (marked). Pictured here is the interior of the tomb 

Archaeologists scanned the tomb to find what some believe could be the resting place of Queen Nefertiti, the legendary wife of Tutankhamun’s father whose mummy has never been found.

Mr El-Damaty believes the chambers contain the tomb of a member of Tutankhamun’s family, but would not speculate on Nefertiti.

  1. Thank you for the variety of the information: current and historical that your blog provides. It is, for me, that I found your blog and open it up with regularity. Today’s was fascinating and educational. Especially the use of technology in archaeology which offers great potential for finding artifacts still remaining in looted sites. Good work!

  2. Wow! How interesting and cool. Thanks, Brent.

    I can add this as a tidbit to the list of rejoinders when some lackwit says something like, “the science is settled”…Oh, yeah?

    More evidence that we still don’t even know what we don’t know.
