News, Luxor: Official says Egypt approves radar for Nefertiti tomb quest
An Egyptian official says the Antiquities Ministry has given initial approval
for the use of non-invasive radar to verify a theory that Queen Nefertiti’s
crypt may be hidden behind King Tutankhamun’s 3,300-year-old tomb in the famous
Valley of the Kings.
Moussa, media consultant to the antiquities minister, said Tuesday that final
security clearance will probably be obtained within a month. “It’s
not going to cause any damage to the monument,” says Moussa.
Nicholas Reeves had recently published his theory that has yet to be
peer-reviewed. He says King Tut, who died at the age of 19, may have been
rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally the tomb of Nefertiti.
says Reeves, who has been in contact with the minister, arrives in Cairo
