Nefertiti's Tomb found? Sensational discovery in the Egyptian Valley of the Kings! Once again, a new tomb was discovered underneath the desert sands, as reported by the German-language MYSTERIES Magazine in its next newsstand issue.
So far, the Egyptian Department of the Antiquities has kept silent about the exact location of this discovery. As MYSTERIES has now revealed exclusively on its webpage, the tomb, which was discovered in November 2007, is allegedly located in very close vicinity of King Meren-Ptah (KV 8). Could it be the last resting space of Ramesses VIII? Hardly, because the discovery appears to be a "stepped entrance" which points to a significant Amarna Ruler Tomb from the 18th Dynasty - possibly even to the legendary and elusive last resting place of Pharaoh Akhenaten or his wife Nefertiti!
After the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922 and the Tomb Depository KV 63 in 2006, this is only the third significant discovery in the Valley of the Kings in the last 85 years. It can be expected that Zahi Hawass will hold an international press conference soon informing the public about this sensational discovery, especially since he also made another "significant discovery" with the famous tomb of Pharaoh Sethos I.
