Signs point to two hidden rooms at Tutankhamun’s tomb, experts say

My latest article for The Art Newspaper.

Early evidence uncovered by archaeologists working at Tutankhamun’s tomb in Luxor, Egypt suggest that two additional chambers may lie hidden at the boy pharaoh’s burial site.

A physical examination of the tomb walls by specialists, led by Egypt’s head of antiquities Mamdouh Eldamaty and the British archaeologist Nicholas Reeves, suggests that the ceiling continues behind its north wall, and that this may once have formed part of a corridor.
