Archeologists say they are on the verge of what could be an amazing find. Recent research suggests that King Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt's Valley of the Kings may contain a hidden chamber. Experts, however, disagree on what will be found inside.
In 2015 a British Egyptologist said he found evidence of a hidden chamber behind King Tutankhamun's lavish tomb. Archaeologists have now started what they hope are decisive scans.
The tomb likely belonged to a high-ranking female priest, Hetpet, from Egypt's 5th dynasty pharaohs. The 4,400-year-old tomb is the latest in a string of ancient discoveries made in the country in recent months.
Egyptian authorities have unearthed two ancient tombs in the southern city of Luxor. Wall inscriptions suggest the tombs belong to two notable figures from Egypt's 18th dynasty pharaohs, who ruled some 3,500 years ago.
The tomb of a royal goldsmith who died in Luxor thousands of years ago has been discovered, according to Egyptian authorities. It is the latest in a series of announcements meant to boost the troubled tourist industry.
