New Egyptian Tomb Found

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’.
