No hidden rooms in Tutankhamun burial chamber, says Egypt

Antiquities ministry tells radar scans devote conclusive evidence there are no concealed rooms

Egypt’s antiquities ministry has said new radar scans offer conclusive evidence that there are no hide rooms inside King Tutankhamun’s burial chamber.

Mostafa Waziri, the secretary general of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, said an Italian squad had conducted extensive studies with ground-penetrating radar that presented the tomb did not contain any hidden, manmade blocking walls, as was earlier suspected.

In 2015 after analysis of high-definition laser scans, a British Egyptologist, Nicholas Reeves, proposed that Queen Nefertiti’s tomb could be disguised behind wall paintings in the boy king’s burial chamber.

The ministry told previous scans by Japanese and American scientists had proved inconclusive.
