Tutankhamun’s Tomb May Hold A Secret Room

It's time to ascend.

King Tutankhamun

Initially suggested by British archaeologist Nicholas Reeves, the suggested theory that there could be a secret room accessible from King Tutamkhamuns room, which some speculate may even be the long lost burial chamber of Queen Nefertiti, has now been gaining some solid momentum.

Dr Reeves has examined high resolution imagery taken inside the tomb, and believes that it contains hidden doorways that have remained untouched for thousands of years.

In October, the Egyptian Antiquities Ministry had authorized the use of high tech scanning equipment within the tomb to look for evidence of hidden chambers, and now after infra red scans, researchers believe they may have actually found something.

Mandouh el-Damaty, the Minister of Antiquities, has revealed that part of the tomb’s northern wall has a different temperature to the rest of the tomb structure, which could indicate that a hidden chamber has been sealed away behind it.

“A number of experiments will be carried out to determine more accurately the area marking the difference in temperature,” he said.

Stay tuned as more results from the tomb’s analysis is set to be confirmed over the next few weeks.
