Tutankhamun's Burial Chamber: Hidden Room Mystery Solved No hidden chamber confirmed inside Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt

National Geographic has a story about a recent effort to use radar to find theoretical hidden chambers that might have housed the mummy of Queen Nefertiti.

Porcelli's study, the third of its kind, was commissioned to settle conflicting results from two previous studies from a Japanese and an American team.

The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced in a Facebook post on Sunday that it could conclusively deny the existence of hidden rooms behind the walls of the boy king's funeral chamber.

A picture taken on November 28, 2015 shows the golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamun displayed in his burial chamber in in the Valley of the Kings, close to Luxor, 500 kilometres south of the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

According to the ministry, a team of Italian geophysicists conducted Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) studies and analysis that conclusively disproved British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves's theory, published in 2015, that the 3,000-year-old funeral chamber might hide the final resting place of one of ancient Egypt's best-known sovereigns. After conducting a thorough investigation, the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities has definitively declared that it contains no secret chambers after all.

There is huge global interest in Nefertiti, who died in the 14th century BC and is thought to be Tutankhamen's stepmother.

Francesco Porcelli, leader of the Italian scientific team, is expected to provide all the details of the ground-penetrating radar (GPR) survey later in the day during the ongoing Fourth Tutankhamun International Conference, according to Mostafa Waziri, head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities. Similarly, the radargrams do not show any indication of plane reflectors, which could be interpreted as chamber walls or void areas behind the paintings of KV62 funerary chamber.

It's official: There are no hidden chambers or passages behind the walls of Pharaoh Tutankhamun's tomb.

The search for the hidden tomb began when English archaeologist Nicholas Reeves, examining detailed scans of the chamber, discovered what looked like faint traces, or "ghosts", of doors beneath the plaster. This he argued means that the royal burial chamber of the queen was hidden behind the tomb of Tutankhamun and that many fabulous treasures were laying there waiting to be discovered.
