New scans indicate possible hidden chamber in King Tut's tomb
A research team has made a promising discovery after surveying King Tut's tomb.
Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities has announced that, based on the group's infrared thermography survey, the northern wall seems to register different temperatures.
Some believe this variance could confirm the assertion of archaeologist Nicholas Reeves that Queen Nefertiti's tomb may be located in the vicinity.
In fact, he believes the area was originally her resting place until King Tut died suddenly and was placed inside out of urgency.
The pharaoh's pyramids are just one of the top places to visit in Egypt:
Based on an assessment of detailed images of the walls, Reeves has hypothesized that there may be two chambers—one of which could contain the queen herself—hidden behind the walls.
The ministry has stated that experts will work further to identify the precise locations of the temperature variances.
