Long-lost tomb of Queen Nefertiti may be hidden inside Tutankhamun's
In what experts are saying could be the 'greatest archeological discovery of all time', Dr Nicholas Reeves of the University of Arizona has announced he thinks he's found the long-lost tomb of ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti.
Reeves says scans of Tutankhamun's tomb (who is thought to be Nefertiti's son) at the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, Egypt, appear to show two walled-up doorways. This would explain a mystery that has long puzzled archeologists - why King Tutankhamun's tomb is so small. Reeves' theory is that the original tomb was Queen Nefertiti's and her son's is just a small antechamber added later, when he also died.
Over 2000 objects were found in Tutankhamun's tomb and it remains the most intact tomb ever discovered, so there's a possibility Nefertiti's tomb could be completely untouched. Reeves says if he's wrong, he's wrong. But if he's right, 'the prospects are frankly staggering'.
