The whereabouts of Egyptian Queen Nefertiti's long-lost tomb have remained unknown for centuries, but it's possible her remains are buried behind secret doors in the tomb of her 3,300-year-old son, Tutankhamun.

Nefertiti has continued to capture our collective imagination throughout the ages. Yet no trace has ever been found of the legendary "beautiful one" who ruled across Egypt at her husband's side.

Last month, the tantalizing theory swept armchair archaeologists the world over when Reeves published a report suggesting Nefertiti has been hiding in plain sight all along.

n his paper on the possible find, Reeves theorized that the size of Tutankhamun's tomb is "less than appropriate" for the final resting place of an Egyptian king. Instead he seems to have solved the conundrum that has baffled archaeologists for years by explaining that its inadequate size and unusual layout is because it is an extension of an earlier tomb originally designed for a queen.

Department of antiquities finally gona let em dig more??? Must be the new guy has an actual desire to uncover some past. Zahi Hawass never wanted to let anyone dig new sites. Always made for good interviews on Coast2Coast though.

Nice update on the initial breaking thread shared about the possibly finding. The traditional function of orbital side rooms were for storage. Happy to hear they are going to go further into investigating them. As stated interesting to see how this develops.

Well I am confused.
Why would it take " a few years" to find out there are chambers there, if they are going to use ground penetrating radar?

And may be many years, if there are, to look in them?

I get the whole "Protect every detail" thing, but that just struck me as odd.

As well as calling it a "Portal". Is that normal in Archaeology? ( I really have no idea)
