A New Search For Tutankhamun’s Lost Chamber Has Begun

0

Archaeologists plan to resume the search for lost burial chambers in King Tutankhamun’s tomb.

The news follows more than a year of speculation after British Egyptologist, Nicholas Reeves, said he found signs of a hidden doorway in King Tut’s tomb.

At the time, he said one of the secret rooms could be the burial place of Queen Nefertiti.

A team now plans to use radar systems to scan the 3,300-year-old tomb, which was first opened in 1923 by British researcher Howard Carter.

The search will be led by the Polytechnic University Turin, Italy and will be the third team in the past two years researchers have looked for the lost chamber.

‘It will be a rigorous scientific work and will last several days, if not weeks,’ Franco Porcelli, the project’s director and a professor of physics at the department of applied science and technology of the Polytechnic University in Turin, told Seeker.

He claims that and finding them would be the ‘discovery of the century’.
