Archaeologists May Have Made The ‘Biggest Discovery Of The 21st Century’ Inside Tutankhamun’s Tomb Tomb Rooms Century 21st 2.4K Archeologists studying the tomb of Tutankhamun have discovered two secret rooms hidden behind the walls of the burial chamber. According to Egyptian ministers, this could be the “biggest discovery of the 21st century.”
Scans have revealed two rooms that have been completely untouched for 3,000 years, hidden on the north and eastern walls of the tomb. The rooms contain either metal or organic material, according to The Independent. In a news conference in Cairo on Thursday, Egyptian Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty said that the chambers will be scanned again at the end of the month. “We can say more than 90 percent that the chambers are there,” he announced. “But I never start the next step until I’m 100 percent.” El-Damaty said that the newly discovered rooms could contain the tomb of a member of Tutankhamun’s family. However, he would not speculate on whether it could be Queen Nefertiti’s final resting place – who scholars have argued may have been Tutankhamun’s mother. If the tomb of Queen Nefertiti is discovered, it could be one of the most important archaeological finds of the 21st century. The tomb in Luxor, Egypt, which people have claimed is cursed, was initially found by a team supervised by British Archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922. This could be huge ( via theladbible.com ).
