Ok! Here we are! The latest and possibly the last instalment of the Nefertiti and King Tut tomb saga…. (see past posts) – The Italian team who have completed ‘extensive studies with ground-penetrating radar’ have announced there is nothing behind the walls of King Tut’s tomb and accordingly it seems this is might be the final word.
This tomb is basically a plastered box room, with many inexplicable anomolies (both with the tomb construction/orientation and many of the artifacts), which flaunt the burial protocols for a king in Ancient Egypt. I think to be an Egyptologist you have to be totally entralled and inspired by a good mystery – because sometimes that’s all you’ll get…

Well here is the latest (see link below)…..but somehow I sense not the final word, on King Tut’s tomb being in proximity to Nefertiti’s burial chamber. There is something that doesn’t sit well with me in all of this, an inkling that not enough has been done, and even where focus has been exhausted (i.e. side wall chambers), I would like to know what Dr. Nicholas Reeves has to say on the matter. The hyperbole around the theory, (inevitable given the subject matter), may have worked against him. Egyptology – like many art/sciences – can be a minefield of ego, jealousies and politicing as is historically the case in most arts/sciences. I hope there is some continued interest in the theory. Dr. Reeves has been so patient and respectful observing the painfully slow protocols that inevitably surround such a theory and investigation of such an iconic tomb. This alone has garnered my respect and admiration.
