Thread: Queen Nefertiti may lie concealed in King Tut's tomb

    Queen Nefertiti may lie concealed in King Tut's tomb

    This may answer many questions if found to be true.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...Tuts-tomb.html

    High-resolution scans suggest the tomb of Ancient Egypt's boy-king Tutankhamun contains passages to two hidden chambers, including what one British archaeologist believes is the last resting place of Queen Nefertiti.

    Egyptian officials said on Monday there's evidence of two hidden chambers behind the tomb's famous painted walls -- and one expert believes those secret rooms could be the long-lost final resting place of Queen

    If true, then to avoid destroying the walls, how will they ever enter the tomb? One can't drill from any other direction, we might then ruin artwork in Nefertiti's tomb on it's walls and ceiling. This will be profoundly interesting and an adventure.

    There are more problems than just the preservation of the originally discovered site. There is so much technology available to investigate this theory/discovery. Who will choose what approach will be taken? Will it be the usual Antiquities Dept or will the government of Egypt step in and attempt to control or quash investigation? Will the process of deciding be open or entirely behind closed doors with no press coverage? Will permission be denied? Perhaps the most important question, who will do the actual investigation?

    The « ScanPyramids » Project Launch to Crack the Secret of the Biggest Egyptian Pyramids


    ”CAIRO, Oct. 25, 2015 /CNW/ - The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities is pleased to announce the launch of an egyptian - international Project using non-invasive and non-destructive surveying techniques for the scanning of Egyptian Pyramids under the title "ScanPyramids" project...

    The scientific mission "Scan Pyramids" is an unprecedented, large-scale project and will begin early November. It will focus on four masterpieces of the Fourth Dynasty (2575-2465): on the site of Dahshur, about fifteen kilometers south of Saqqara, the mission will study the South pyramid, called the Bent, and the North pyramid, called the Red, both built by Snefru (2575 - 2551). On the Giza plateau at about twenty kilometers from Cairo, it will study the pyramids of Khufu and Khafre, built by the son and grand-son of Snefru.

    This campaign is entirely dedicated to the advancement of knowledge...

    Whatever they decide to do, let's hope they do it before ISIS moves in and destroys everything, including the Sphinx!

    Who indeed? I always respected Hawass (IMHO just the right mix of sharing knowledge, while jealously protecting national treasures).
    But since his ouster when Mubaruk was over thrown, not likely he will make a comeback.

    I hope they never bring him back because he was too closed minded and sabotaged other researchers exploratory expeditions of those tombs. He's too stuck in the status quo which is understandable as he was at the apex of it.

    Smithsonian mag. wrote an excellent article about him entitled The Rise and Fall and Rise of Zahi Hawass
    The long-reigning king of Egyptian antiquities has been forced into exile—but he’s plotting a return

    If that's the worst of it, all sounds very political to me.

    As a bureaucrat, I respected he was as likely to be found in the field with a shovel, as sitting behind a desk with paper and pen. Unlike many other administrators.

    If not Hawass, then who better?

    I have to agree with A99. Hawass is known for picking and choosing his history and what he'll choose to dig to reinforce that narrative. Egyptologists that want to work in Egypt have to genuflect to him and his view of history. There remains the bulk of Egyptian history under the sands. So much is not known and will remain unknown as long as he is in charge. Answers to questions of their technology have been shelved waiting to see the light of day.

    Hawass is closed to the idea of a Mother Civilization that lies outside of Egypt. That civilization is likely further west when the Sahara was a plain filled with grasses and wildlife that supported these intelligent people. There are similarities to the star culture of their religions with the Dogon, language and letters have similarities, yet Hawass refutes that with a toss of his hand. Apparently it's a coincidence.
    So much, so very much, is suppressed in the name of his view of Egyptian superiority.

    If not Hawass who? A valid question, but two steps back is not an answer either. For now they need to protect what they have from religious extremists who vow to deface or destroy what is above ground. Leave the balance safely blanketed under the sands till these mad men are in the Paradise. Then they can set about finding a scientist that will truly pursue the truth for the benefit of mankind.

    On a personal note: I despise his grandstanding and self aggrandizement. National Geographic sank their teeth into that and IMO, did themselves little good. Sometimes it's as if the program is more about him, and less about the remarkable culture surrounding him. So glad to see him in the shadows at last.

    Do you know what's truly remarkable? Hawass' PhD at the University of Penn was funded by the Association for Research and Enlightenment (Edgar Cayce's org in Virgina Beach) and his Fulbright scholarship was acquired via his connections to that org. too. Yet, ironically, Hawass turned his back on the very hand that fed him once he completed that program.
