High probability of hidden chambers in Tut tomb-0.9

It is sure that two new chambers have been discovered in Tutankhamun's tomb: according to archelogists one of these rooms could be Nefertiti's tomb High probability of hidden chambers in Tut tomb-0.9

Experts carried out radar scanning exercise over the ancient tomb of Tutankhamun. The results showed a high chance, actually 90% of existence of two secret chambers, containing organic matter. These revelations were released on Thursday by antiquities minister in Egypt, Mamduh al Damati.

Initial scans of the tomb exposed two hidden chambers. While speaking to reporters, Mamduh al Damati said in English that the scans revealed an empty space, though not totally empty since there were some metal and organic material. When questioned about how sure he was regarding this issue, he responded by quoting a 90% probability.

Curiosity triggered experts to carry out the scans to confirm what a British archaeologist argues that the tomb could be the burial place of the legendary beauty, Queen Nefertiti.

A pertinent research by Nicholas Reeves, a renowned archaeologist indicate that Nefertiti’s burial point could be in a hidden room just next to Tutankhamun’s tomb in the southern Egypt region of Luxor, precisely the valley of kings. Reeves seems to be strongly convinced that one of the doors to the tomb of Tutankhamun might be concealing Nefertiti’s burial place.

According to this university of Arizona’s professor, Reeves, the death of Tutankhamun was unexpected , leading to a quick burial, perhaps leading to him being buried in the wrong chamber.

Damati said that the two hidden rooms fall somewhere behind the western and northern beacons of Tutankhamun’s burial place. What does this exactly mean? There exists two extensions adjoining the burial chamber for Tutankhamun. Damati also confirmed the presence of organic materials in the two chambers but he could not immediately identify the nature of the material as there emerged rumors that they could be a mummy.

Further radar tests are expected on March 31. Nefertiti played a crucial religious and political role back in the 14th century Before Christ. She was an active supporter of Akhenaten, her husband, the father to Tutankhamun. Her husband is known for the role he played in converting the old Egypt to the worship of god Aton, popularly known as monotheism.

Use of infrared technology has also seen research extended to the Great pyramid, red pyramid, and Khafre. The operation dubbed operation ScanPyramids is expected to unveil more light on the two hidden chambers.
