Nefertiti burial theory
Luxor - MENA

Minister of Antiquities Mamdouh el Damati met Monday with Nicholas Reeves, a British Egyptologist, to listen to his theory regarding the burial of Nefertiti in a hidden chamber of King Tut's tomb.

The minister and Reeves then headed to the tomb in the Valley of the Kings to search for the chamber.

Using state-of-the-art surveying equipment, Reeves is expected to begin searching cracks on the northern wall for a secret doorway leading to a previously undiscovered space.

The hypothesis came after extensive analysis of high resolution images published online last year by Factum Arte, a Madrid-based art restoration specialist who helped create a facsimile of King Tut's burial chamber in Luxor. In the scans, Reeves spotted cracks in the walls that could indicate two previously unrecognized "ghost" doorways lay behind.
