Who else might be in Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s Tomb


In July 2015 a revolutionary paper suggesting evidence for hitherto unknown chambers within KV 62 with a possible hidden burial of Queen Nefertiti was published. High-definition photographic scans of KV 62 by Arte Factum revealed traces of two possible doorways to such hitherto undiscovered chambers. Hence, the doorway could lead to the true burial chamber of KV 62, while the burial chamber of Tutankhamun would be in fact a modified well-chamber due to his sudden death .

The Egyptian Minister of Antiquities suggested the likely scenario of this being the hidden burial of Kiya, the suggested mother of Tutankhamun. The possible findings based of these preliminary observations range from nothing at all behind the wall or unfinished and closed corridors to storage chamber(s) with additional treasures.

  1. When do they plan to open the doorways? Have anyone gotten permission yet from the Egyptian government? Can you give an update on what planned for the excavation?

  2. Funny how it’s always Nefertiti – let me throw a spanner in the works and suggest Smenkhankhre (assuming he is not Nefertiti in another guise) is equally probably. After all we have KV55 with Akhenaten and perhaps Queen Tiye for a while but no tomb or trace of one for Smenkhankhre.
