Queen Nefertiti of ancient Egypt was one of the most beautiful women in history, at least if you go by the famous bust on display in a Berlin museum. Now, an archaeologist believes he has found her tomb more than three thousand years after she died.
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.
Several former employees of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo will face a disciplinary hearing over a botched restoration of one of the institution's most prized relics.
If the hidden chambers exist, experts say they could house the mummified remains of the legendary beauty Queen Nefertiti. Expectations are high for another scan of King Tutanchamun's tomb at the end of the month.
