"Scans in Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt's Valley of the Kings point to a hidden chamber, the country's antiquities minister said Saturday, possibly heralding the discovery of Queen Nefertiti's resting place." Source: Archaeology News Network.
Note: "...the tomb of Nefertiti has never been found," according to National Geographic. "Her mummified body, prepared for its journey to the afterlife, likely rests in the Valley of the Kings. But where?
"Archaeologist Nicholas Reeves [see next post] believes the illustrious Egyptian queen has been hiding in plain sight, within a large chamber behind a concealed door in the tomb of King Tutankhamun, which was discovered by Howard Carter in 1922. Recent scientific surveys of the ancient building have found tantalizing clues that are consistent with Reeves’ theories."
Update: I'm kind of skeptical about this one. Archaeology is big business in Egypt and the Council of Antiquities appears to be hyping up this discovery the same way that Greece hyped up the discovery of the Amphipolis tomb last year. According to MSN, "the prospect [of discovering Nefertiti's tomb] is beyond tantalizing, and would be as momentous a find as any here for almost a century, antiquities officials say. It would also come at a time when Egypt's tourism industry, frozen by years of political unrest and fears of militant attacks, is in urgent need of good news."
