Archaeologist Says He May Have Found Nefertiti’s Tomb


TIME

A British archaeologist says he may have discovered where ancient Egyptians buried Nefertiti, the Egyptian queen and wife of Pharaoh Akhenaten.

Nefertiti, whose famous bust immortalized her profile, has been the object of searches by archaeologists for decades with little luck. Now, Nicholas Reeves of the University of Arizona says that he has identified the location of her hidden tomb behind a wall in the Valley of Kings. In a research paper, Reeves suggests that Nefertiti may be connected to Tut’s tomb through a portal.

The findings still need to be verified but would be a major breakthrough and help shed light on other lingering questions about how the ancient Egyptians buried their royalty.

Nefertiti, who lived in the 14th century BC, continues to be known for her beauty to this day.
