Egypt presented the results of the radar analysis carried out by the expert Hirokatsu Watanabu in the tomb of Tutankhamun and the result could not be more revealing: it has been proven that there is not one secret chamber but two, and that both contain metallic materials and organic remains.

The two chambers are located on the north and west walls, hidden behind the paintings. In the case of the first, it is known that it is a niche of 1.5 meters in diameter and 2 meters deep, while the scanner revealed that this wall has a hole that is probably an access door, the one that is closed with lighter material than the solid stone with which the other walls are made.

Mamdouh el-Damaty, Minister of Antiquities of Egypt, presented the studies and stated that further analysis will be conducted with international experts and where they will discuss if they will enter these two chambers found and where to do it.

The Minister in turn, increased to 90% their confidence that there is something behind the walls, although he did not claim that it could be Nefertiti, the reason why studies have been started here.

Some experts also consider another possibility: that both spaces are unfinished chambers when Tutankhamun dies so soon, which would explain why his tomb was so small and with so many objects, arguing that the metallic and organic remains inside are tools and some offerings that were not taken from there.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
