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.
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.
Egyptian authorities have given credence to a theory that Nefertiti's tomb lay behind a wall in Tutankhamun's burial chamber, by vowing to investigate. Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves first made the claims in August.
Experts say they're "90 percent" sure they've uncovered a chamber in King Tut's tomb containing the final resting place of Nefertiti. If true, archaeologists say it would be one of the biggest discoveries of the century.
Hidden chambers adjoining King Tut's mausoleum promise exciting archaeological finds. What they conceal remains a mystery. Nicholas Reeves believes it's the mysterious queen Nefertiti - and others don't.
