Ahram Online - Radar survey suggests 90pct chance another tomb behind Tutankhamun's burial chamber


After four months of technical studies in Japan, radar specialist Hirokatsu Watanabi asserted with 90 percent certainty that there are two hidden chambers behind the north and west walls of Tutankhamun's burial chamber, Minister of Antiquities Mamdouh Eldamaty announced in a press conference Thursday. Eldamaty said that the recent studies carried out on the west and north walls of Tutankhamun's tomb reveal solid and empty spaces, as well as lintels, which indicates the existence of doorways. Organic and metal materials were also detected inside these empty spaces.

Nothing in the article about how they went about detecting the presence of metal let alone organic materials in these chambers that are almost certainly present. Eldamaty appears to be confirming the information leaked by Zaazou. I'd really like to have more to say about this other than the waiting is driving me nuts!

EDIT:

From NPR - King Tut's Tomb May Have Hidden Spaces Containing Organic, Metallic Materials




Now, NPR's Leila Fadel tells our Newscast unit that analysis of scans conducted in November shows there are two empty spaces behind the walls. And those spaces may contain organic or metallic material.

The presence of organic or metal objects would certainly add weight to the theory that the tomb contains hidden chambers — but as Leila reports, more advanced scans are required before authorities can say for sure.


I guess I didn't realize they could infer that much about the composition from radar.

But i saw this like 2 years ago.. Haven't they oppened them yet.. It seems like a waste of time to share the same news again and again.

Like really, it had photos of the walls, with explanation how it actually is 90% certanty that it is a secret door. How they scanned it and thats how they found it. . . .

I am postive this is back from 2014 or early 2015

Remember that live broadcast when they 'opened' the shafts(when they send a robot)? that was a disappointment.

Hope this one will be better.

Weird. Late september..

I could have sworn this was up back in 2014 . . . Because this is how much i have not been using Abovetopsecret or any other such site. Since 2014. LAst few days it was my first time coming here in years.

That was the infrared thermography scans. ATS thread here. There was another thermal survey of some sort after that done live in front of the press. The original discovery of these hidden chambers came back in August I think it was in Nicholas Reeves's paper. Reeves found evidence of plastered over doorways in high resolution images taken of the walls.

If the materials in the walls are fairly uniform, and you've got plenty of time, you can get a lot of info about what's being scanned, especially if you use a multistatic setup.

Metallic objects give you more return, and are more sharply defined, than rock. Organic substances absorb and dissipate the output beam, and while they give you 'soft' returns due to impedance mismatch, you can sometimes learn more by examining the 'shadow' they cast on the rock return from the far side of the chamber.

That made so much sense that I'm little embarrassed it didn't occur to me. Thanks for the explanation!

Now let me get this straight, they know there are 2 hidden chambers in there. They do nothing ? for years ? hoax! I'm saying to generate interest in Egypt and get tourist's flooding back there. The rooms if they do exist will be full of rubble and have no interest to a tourist. Sick of all the Egypt hype that leads to never ending disappointment, get your act together and drill the bottom corner and stick a camera in or shut the hell up about some phony load of crap.

I am so glad people like you aren't the ones in charge of preserving ancient monuments/history.

I used to work with an "Air Operator" involved in testing new equipment in conjunction with Google. It was a new type of Radar that could detect and tell you the composition of "Organic matter" wood, plant, human etc.

It allegedly had military uses but for this platform was used to determine the type and growth of plants / trees that grow around outback and bush locations around high voltage electricity masts. It was attached to an surveillance aircraft and flown in a grid pattern. Anyway, from the data they could tell what was growing (Type of plant / tree) and from that they could determine the growth patterns of the species and when they required to instruct crews of men to cut and remove hazards down before they became a problem. (Australia is a big place!).

Anyway, in relation to this they would almost certainly be able to tell organic with this type of radar. Possibly even its composition?

Unfortunately the rooms are behind floor to ceiling paintings. The Egyptian antiques agency or what ever they are called will not allow destruction of the painting to get to the rooms.

May have been debunked....

I'm not surprised -- there is no reason on earth for him and Nefertiti to be associated and no reason why she'd have a tomb in the Valley of the Kings (which would have been a tomb they were working on for quite a few years.) Now... if it'd been her daughter's tomb instead of Tut's tomb, I'd say it might be likely that Nefertiti was there.

BTW, there was apparently an effort on the part of the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism to downplay/quash the report that there's nothing there.

Actually a camera would not be damaging and could tell the whole story. Camera heads on snakes exist down to less that a 1/4 inch, and a smooth bore hole , like you said, in the lower near the corner, would not hurt any of the artwork, and with the right drill, an easy task. Why this has not been done has reasons way beyond finding another treasure room.

Well the connection between Nefertiti and Tut is that she is his mother, and reigned briefly before his rise.

en.wikipedia.org...

Problem is, there is no precedent for women to be buried in the valley of kings; even an ex-pharoess

NOT his mother. Mother of his wife.

Also not true. One of the female pharaohs (not Hatshepsut) is buried there.

Got me!

Memory failed me as I remembered the quote below:



the monotheistic worship of the sun god Aton would have precluded her interment in Luxor. “The lady was worshipping Aton with Akhenaten for years. The priests would never allow her to be buried in the Valley of the Kings,” he said.
