Is there or isn’t there a hidden chamber, or chambers, connected to King Tutankhamun’s tomb? Just when we think the story reaches a conclusion a new study emerges throwing the mystery back into the headlines. New ground penetrating radar results, taken from a different perspective, once again suggest the possibility of a chamber that may be connected to the famous KV62 tomb of King Tut. But this time experts are searching from a different angle. Are we getting closer to finding the elusive burial of Nefertiti?

He noted the presence of fissures and put forward the idea that there may be sealed doors in the north and west walls of the tomb.
