Queen Nefertiti Finally Located?

What Lies Beneath


Could the famous tomb of Tutankhamen also hold a chamber besides it containing Nefertiti? Historical notions would point toward her tomb being somewhere in the Western Valley, not in the Valley of the Kings where this find alludes to.


What Mr Reeves found in these ultra-high-resolution images, which reveal the texture of walls beneath layers of paint in the original tomb, was a number of fissures and cracks that suggest the presence of two passages that were blocked and plastered to conceal their existence.
( proposed new areas in yellow.) One of these would probably lead to a storeroom; its position and small size mirror that of an already-uncovered storeroom inside the multi-chambered tomb. The other, bigger possible doorway in the north wall of Tutankhamun’s burial chamber suggests something much more exciting.

Been following some sources on this and figured to present what is known now about the chamber of King Tut. Fantastic find however this plays out.

Interesting idea, but to me, It seems just as likely that the plaster could simply have been used to smooth out or cover cracks in the stone wall before it was painted. It should be easy enough, with radar, to determine either way, though.

Thanks for your reply. At the very least covering cracks or even, as he mentioned in the paper, that the traditional function of orbital side rooms was storage and they may be just that. I'm guessing he'll release more images soon.

I have to be honest, I have found watching some of the tv programmes supposedly about the 'latest ancient Egyptian discoveries, such as the first opportunity for us to see behind the door/wall in X thousands of years' etc tedious and frustrating. I do hope if there is anything to this, it won't pan out as the previous 'fabulous discoveries' have and leave us no further forward.

It's amazing if her tomb is finally found, in plain sight as well. Like you said though, the plastered walls could be simply coving up old cracks or something. I'm hopefull that that's not the case and we genuinely have a new tomb to look over.
I always thought all the tombs we currently know of were checked for things like this.

Interesting though. Can't wait to hear more about this.

Nefertiti is so beautiful I don’t see her as mortal.


She must be a goddess come to earth and they’ll never find her remains because she hasn’t any…

Indeed only a Goddess could have married that ugly son of a bitch Akhenaton
just to teach him the way

So forever I hope she remains a mystery rapped in an enigma inside the riddle of Ancient Egypt

I feel the same, but for what it's worth...(am seeing more sources of the story will add to this in another post of necessary).

Speaking of shows, and the inconclusive nature so far of what's out there, the news reminded me of the Discovery documentary where researchers claimed researchers may have found her heavily damaged mummy among other relatives. The Younger Lady Mummy -wiki info- is speculated to be her, but it could be male or that of Akhenaten as Egyptologists Zahi Hawass says to even Akhenaten's daughter.

Had wondered if maybe the Mummy was hidden in these possible storage spaces if not another tomb, relocated and hidden after many were damaged for example.

cross posted- in another update thread for anyone wondering;

here's the most that I've found, though was recently more recently than the initial plan of the Thurs announcement;


“We said earlier there was a 60 percent chance there is something behind the walls. But now after the initial reading of the scans, we are saying it’s 90 percent likely there is something behind the walls,” Egyptian Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty told reporters.

It may be a while until more is known, guessing they want to fully confirm the presence of the rooms before opening the walls. A likely seam to one of the said rooms can be seen in the high resolution images that were released as of recent- see images here



He said he expected to reach the other side of the tomb’s wall within three months.

Japanese radar specialist Hirokatsu Watanabe has been scanning above the surface of the claimed tombs area.
