Nefertiti – Neferneferuaten Nefertiti – was an Egyptian queen and the Great Royal Wife of Akhenaten. With her husband, she reigned at what was arguably the wealthiest period of Ancient Egyptian history. So it would make sense that archaeologists would want to find her tomb.
University of Arizona archaeologist Nicholas Reeves has suggested that the queen’s mummy could be located in a secret chamber hidden in Tutankahmun’s tomb in Luxor’s Valley of the Kings.
He started scanning Tut’s tomb in September. Those initial scans revealed that the tomb’s northern and western walls both concealed chambers.
New scans were begun yesterday and are being continued today. Results will be revealed Saturday.
