Recently, scientists using ground-penetrating radar studied the tomb of Tutankhamun. The device found a pair of corridors that stretch from Tutankhamun’s room to another room 9.5 m wide and 1.8 m high.

Experts have long believed that the coffins of Tutankhamun and Nefertiti buried together. Some rooms of the tomb remain walled up. It is likely that in one of them the famous female pharaoh is resting.

According to ground-penetrating radar data, the found room is on the same level as the room in which the pharaoh was buried. This may mean that the rooms were dug at the same time.

In 1922, Howard Carter made a sensational discovery in archeology – he found Tutankhamun. As everyone believes, the archaeologist became interested in the export of gold from the tomb, as a result, he missed other discoveries.
