Label this “Too Early to Tell”:
An archaeologist thinks he may have evidence that the tomb of Egyptian Queen Nefertiti is hidden in plain site.
In a paper recently published by the Amarna Royal Tombs Project, Nicholas Reeves, an archaeologist at the University of Arizona, suggests that Nefertiti’s tomb may be hidden in a passageway behind Tutankhamun’s tomb.
Reeves examined high-resolution images of King Tut’s burial tomb and found what appears to be fissures and cracks in several places on the wall. Reeves writes that the cracks suggest that behind the wall, “two previously unknown doorways” were sectioned off and plastered over.
It’s not implausible, but there is more work to be done. Therefore, headlines such as “Nefertiti was buried inside King Tut’s tomb” is premature. The anomalies have not been explored to see if there is another tomb behind Tut’s and if anything is even in there.
