Discovery of the century, researchers began to “dig deeper” in search of the secret chamber of King Tutankhamun

With a new probe which uses the latest generation radar from reaching the technology once and for all we will try to discover whether someone lying still back in the famous tomb of King Tutankhamun.
The search for facts about the secret chamber of the tomb of King Tutankhamun will continue with a team of Italian researchers who will take the investigation to new depths.

A team from the Polytechnic University of Turin will scan the tomb and its surroundings with the latest radar technology.


“It will be a rigorous scientific work and will last for several days, if not weeks,” Franco Porseli, project director and professor of physics at the department of Applied Science and Technology at the Polytechnic University of Turin Seeker.

“Three radar systems will be used using frequencies from 200 MHz to 2 GHz.”

The investigation into the royal tomb is part of a broader long-term project to implement fully geophysical mapping of the Valley of the Kings, the main cemetery in the Pharaohs of Egypt, which is led by a team from the Polytechnic University of Turin.

Earth-piercing radar, along with instruments based on the electric resistant tomography and magnetic induction will scan depth to 10 meters to provide information on existing underground structures.

“Who knows what we can find while scanning the country,” added Franco.

The researchers plan to conduct the first preliminary research at the tomb of Tutankhamun by the end of this month.


This feat Franco to permeate the 3,300-year old tomb will be the third such attempt carried out in the past two years.

The search began in 2015, following a request by Nicholas Reeves, a British Egyptologist at the University of Arizona.


Reeves believes that there is a hidden chamber in the tomb of King Tutankhamun containing the remains, perhaps untouched, Queen Nefertiti, the wife of the “heretic” pharaoh Akhenaten monotheistic father of Tutankhamen.

Reeves rumored that the tomb of Tutankhamun was not ready when Pharaoh died unexpectedly at age 19 in 1323 BC.

As a result, he was buried in a hurry in what was originally the tomb of Nefertiti, who died 10 years earlier.


The radar scans performed in 2015 by the Japanese specialist radar Hirokatsu Watanabu were greeted with enthusiasm by Mamdouh Eldamaty, former Minister of ancient Egypt.

He found that the analysis of scans Watanabu pointed to “the chance of 90 percent,” that the tomb of King Tutankhamun lies two chambers, the northern and eastern walls.

The discovery stirred the world of archeology. “This may be the discovery of the century,” said Eldamaty.
