Scans of King Tut’s Tomb Reveal Hidden Rooms, Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry Says – NBC News

CAIRO — Radar scans of King Tut’s tomb have revealed two empty spaces on the north and east chambers of the pharaonic mausoleum, Egypt’s antiquities ministry said Thursday.

King Tutankhamun, often dubbed the boy king, was an Egyptian pharaoh who rose to power in 1333 B.C., at the tender age of 10. His mother was Queen Nefertiti, and his father was Akhenaten.

One prominent Egyptologist has theorized that Queen Nefertiti could be buried in the walls of the 3,300-year-old pharaonic mausoleum.
