King Tut’s tomb may conceal Egypt’s lost Queen Nefertiti

New evidence from radar images has experts saying chances are high the tomb of Egypt’s King Tut has passages leading to a hidden chamber.

And that may lead to the last resting place of the lost Queen Nefertiti — seen here, as a famous sculpture.

With much international interest, journalists gathered to watch the scanning process…

Which British archaeologist Nicolas Reeves says has, so far, highlighted the apparent presence of closed doorways.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH ARCHAEOLOGIST, NICOLAS REEVES, SAYING:

“The proposal I put forward was that the burial of Tutankhamun was actually a tomb within a tomb.”

Experts say Nefertiti died in 14th century B.C. and is thought to be Tut’s stepmother.

…And confirmation of her final resting place would be the most remarkable Egyptian archaeological find this century.

New evidence from the radar imaging is to be sent to Japan for analysis.

The results are expected to be announced in a month.
