The first examinations carried out on Tutankhamun’s tomb have revealed that the tomb’s northern and western walls both conceal chambers, Egypt’s antiquities minister Mamdouh Eldamaty announced on Monday.
Those examinations were carried out by Eldamaty and British archeologist Nicholas Reeves in Luxor.
Markings and scratches on both walls are similar to those found on the entrance gate of Tutankhamun’s tomb when it was discovered in 1922.
“This indicates that the western and northern walls of Tutankhamun’s tomb could hide two burial chambers,” Eldamaty told Ahram Online.
