Perhaps found by radars near Tutankhamun's room (ANSA)



Beyond the north-eastern walls of Tutankhamun's tomb an unexplored corridor, 10 meters long and 2 meters wide, may be hidden, perhaps linked to the burial of Queen Nefertiti: the radars of a group of Egyptian archaeologists led by the ex-minister of antiquities Mamdouh would have discovered it Eldamaty. The study, not yet published in official journals, was reported in recent days to the Supreme Council of Egyptian Antiquities, according to what Nature magazine writes on its website. There are many perplexities in the scientific community, including Italian researchers who have already conducted similar analyzes on the tomb of the pharaoh child.

The suspicious corridor at the center of the rumors would be at the same depth as Tutankhamun's burial chamber and run parallel to the entrance corridor of the tomb. It is unclear whether the space is physically connected to the pharaoh's grave or if it is part of another burial. Its orientation, perpendicular to the main axis of Tutankhamun's tomb, would suggest the presence of a link.

"It is difficult to comment on a study without having the technical data available, but I am very skeptical", says Francesco Porcelli, professor of physics at the Polytechnic of Turin, who with his research team has already conducted two similar studies on the pharaoh's tomb , published in 2018 and 2019.

"We used the electrotomographic technique to make measurements from outside the tomb and three latest generation georadars with different frequencies to collect complementary data from inside the tomb: unfortunately we have not found any secret rooms". Only an anomaly emerged from the data, "which however was in an area affected by excavations and maintenance work carried out on the tourist path leading to the tomb".

It is therefore difficult that the new Egyptian study may have found something different. "I don't think they used tools suitable for that type of scientific survey", underlines Porcelli, who also looks suspiciously at the project partners: among them there is "a British company that we had called to collaborate with us, but that later having carried out the surveys, he no longer wanted to share the data collected ".
