  • Egypt Says 90% Chance of there being more Hidden Chambers in King Tut’s Tomb

Scientists say that there is a 90% chance of there being more hidden chambers in King Tut’s tomb. The last resting place of Queen Nefertiti may lie nearby.

After many months of ongoing probing, researchers believe that there is a likelihood of Queen Nefertiti’s burial site being adjacent to King Tut’s tomb.

There are probably one or more rooms which still remain hidden from view. Radar analysis of the area shows what could be two rooms that have not been explored yet.  

The investigations are taking place in Luxor. The unexplored rooms are most likely to contain the remains of Queen Nefertiti. If this proves to be true, it could be the century’s most important discovery.

Also it would have a salubrious effect on Egyptian history and be a boon for the tourism industry of the nation. Queen Nefertiti was the wife of King Tut’s father.

According to DailyMail, the father’s mummy has not been located until now. Whoever lies buried in the hidden chamber could be either Queen Nefertiti or someone else. It is all speculation at present. The infrared thermography tests revealed several important facts about the concealed chambers. 

For one thing, the temperatures of the two adjacent chambers were different from one another. This was an interesting finding. The possibility of a hidden chamber or chambers is intriguing in itself.

This discovery of an unknown room in the tomb comes at a time when the colored photos of the tomb are being published in the form of a compendium. The pics were taken by a British photographer.

As for the recent experiment in discovery, it took a total time span of a day. Many more probes will be made in order to find out more information regarding the mysterious chambers.  

Several scratched marks and symbols on some of the northern and western walls are the same as are to be found on the walls of King Tut’s tomb. High resolution images of the tomb reveal clear linear traces on the walls.

Some of the features were not very natural in their makeup. Also the features escape ordinary 20/20 vision. There could be two doorways that are hidden among the complex maze that is King Tut’s tomb.

From the design of the tomb it looks like it was meant for a queen rather than a king. Queen Nefertiti was called the Lady of the Two Lands. She was known for her great beauty and charming personality.
