Archaeologists Complete More Extensive Scanning Operation in Egypt

Egyptian and foreign archaeologists completed Friday a more extensive scanning operation of the two recently discovered hidden chambers behind King Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings in Upper Egypt’s Luxor City.

Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany(C) introduces the scanning work during an interview at Luxor’s Valley of the Kings, Egypt on April 1, 2016.

The chambers are believed to be last resting place of Queen Nefertiti, who played a major political and religious role in Egypt in the 14th century B.C.
