No Secret Chambers Behind Ancient Egypt's King Tutankhamen

After months of research and studies, the scientific missions at the Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy, concluded that there are no chambers or rooms behind the walls of King Tutankhamen's tomb.

Italian researchers who conducted extensive studies with ground-penetrating radar found the tomb does not contain any hidden, man-made blocking walls as was earlier suspected, a spokesman for Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities said.

The result of a third radar survey by an Italian mission from the Polytechnic University of Turin is likely to end a three-year debate over the presence of a hidden chamber for ancient Queen Nefertiti in the boy king's tomb as suggested by the British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves in 2015, the ministry said in a statement. His suspicions were based on high-definition laser scans; other scans by Japanese and American scientists were inconclusive.

Queen Nefertiti is believed to be Tutankhamun's mother since she was the principal wife of his father, Pharaoh Akhenaten.

It is a conclusion "with a very high degree of confidence", he noted.

In a gala ceremony, Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany received the sixth and last chariot of Tutankhamun at the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM). Tutankhamun is Akhenaten's son but it has yet to be ruled by historians whether he was also the son of Nefertiti.

In 2014, a BBC documentary used state-of-the-art technology to perform a "virtual autopsy" on King Tutankhamun's 3,000-year old remains.

How the new museum is expected to look.

Revees assumption stirred controversy among Egyptologists and antiquities experts, which prompted them to discuss the whole topic during the Second World Conference of King Tutankhamun in May 2016, which was attended by a distinguished elite of archaeologists from Egypt and the whole world.

The museum now hosts more than 43,200 artefacts, of which over 4500 belong to King Tut alone, and its grand opening is planned for 2022.
