Investigation of King Tut’s Tomb Discloses the Probability of a Hidden Chamber
- Infrared scans confirm a provoking theory
- Presence of a secret chamber
- A team of archaeologists examining the famous tomb revealed some evidence suggesting existence of two burial chambers.
- The tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, who reigned over Egypt in the 18th-Dynasty and died around 1323 B.C., could include two doorways that were plastered and painted over.
Secrets from the past have always been an intriguing topic. A recent study by a team of Egyptology examiners suggests that there is a possibility of two hidden rooms inside the great pyramid.
As stunning as it sounds, the theory is a testament of a proposed finding by another scientist earlier this year who claimed that the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun had two doorways. His findings stated that the tomb was built originally for Queen Nefertiti, the principal wife of his father. The scientist also emphasized that Tut’s tomb wasn’t ready when he died unexpectedly at 19 and was hence buried in Queen Nefertiti’s tomb. However, a few other archaeologists claim that Queen Nefertiti’s Mummy was traced, but no identification was confirmed.
Further studies have been planned to confirm the recent findings. Captivating and stimulating as it sounds, it will be good to know a well-kept secret of the Egyptian mythology.
