Who Is Buried in Queen Nefertiti's Tomb?
She was known for her beauty.
Mystery still surrounds her death.
For thousands of years, people wondered: What happened to Queen Nefertiti?
She lived and died in the 14th century B.C.
But where is her body buried?
It remains a mystery. People have guessed and searched, but always come up empty-handed.
Now, archaeologists think they might be close to an answer ...
She might be behind this wall, in a hidden chamber, or room, inside King Tutankhamun's tomb. He's better known as King Tut.
Tut is famous for the discovery of his tomb — found undisturbed, while many others were robbed years ago.
An X-ray machine was brought in to help in the search. With cameras recording the event, a Japanese radar specialist used modern technology to get an ancient tomb to give up its secrets.
Egyptian Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty told reporters recently that before the X-ray scans, there was a 60 percent chance that something was behind those walls.
Now, he says, "it's 90 percent likely there is something behind these walls."
British Archaeologist Nicolas Reeves has been investigating.
"The proposal I put forward was that the burial of Tutankhamun was actually a tomb within a tomb."
But why King Tut's tomb?
King Tut died when he was only 19 years old. Queen Nefertiti, his step-mother, had died earlier.
There might not have been time to build Tut his own tomb, so some believe he is actually buried in a chamber off a larger tomb. Was it Nefertiti's?
King Tut's tomb is smaller than other pharaohs. Experts ask: Why is it shaped more like those of Egyptian queens of the time?
The next step to finding these answers is a month-long analysis of the X-rays in Japan. Then the exploration continues in Luxor.
If the mystery is solved, if, indeed it is Nefertiti's tomb, it will be the largest discovery in Egypt in a long time. And that could mean more tourists will return to the Valley of the Kings.
