Scan of King Tut’s Tomb Shows Hidden Rooms

Scans of King Tut's burial chamber have revealed two hidden rooms, Egypt's antiquities minister said Thursday, a discovery that could intensify speculation that the chambers contain the remains of the famed Queen Nefertiti.

The discovery could shine new light on one of ancient Egypt’s most turbulent times, and one prominent researcher has theorized that the Nefertiti’s remains could be inside.
British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves speculates that Tutankhamun, who died at the age of 19, may have been rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally Nefertiti’s tomb, which archeologists have yet to find.

Famed for her beauty, Nefertiti was the subject of a famous 3,300-year-old bust.
Nefertiti was one of the wives of Tutankhamun’s father, the Pharaoh Akhenaten. - nationalpost
