A hidden chamber found within the walls of King Tut's tomb could be the final resting place of Queen Nefertiti.

Egyptian officials confirmed that there may well be a secret, never-before-opened chamber inside the tomb of King Tutankhamen.
AFP reports that at least one prominent archeologist believes that the chamber may contain the remains of Queen Nefertiti.
Nicholas Reeves, who has been leading the exploration of the Boy King’s tomb, said at a news conference on Saturday: "I think it is Nefertiti, and all the evidence points in that direction."
The tomb of Queen Nefertiti has been found.
Reeves has been making scans and diagrams of the Boy King's tomb for years, and he is desperate to get inside and have a look what else might be in there.
Egypt's Antiquities ministry has sent scans of the tomb to Japan for further analysis before deciding on the next steps.
‘Experts are now fairly convinced Reeves was right about the hidden chamber, but the question of who, if anyone, is inside is still being debated,’ the report says.
The next step for researchers will be how to get through the hidden doorways without damaging the tomb.
