A British Egyptologist and archaelogist believes he may have solved the millenia-old mystery of where Queen Nefertiti is buried.
Nicolas Reeves believes Nefertiti, an Egyptian queen who reigned for 12 years before vanishing without a trace 3,000 years ago, is buried in a hidden chamber inside the tomb of King Tutankhamun.
King Tut died at 17, but his fame is derived from his resting place being found largely intact in Egypt's Valley of the Kings in 1922.
"I had no preconceived notion that Nefertiti was buried here. To be honest, for some time, I fought the conclusion because it seemed so extraordinary," Reeves told CNN. "But that is where the evidence seems to be pointing."
A picture taken on September 28 shows the golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamun in his burial chamber in near Luxor.
Reeves says the first clues are the simple but vivid hieroglyphics adorning the yellow walls. One section depicts what appear to be a mummy and a pharaoh.
Reeves claims the artwork found inside King Tut's tomb are similar to artworks found elsewhere depicting the boy king and Nefertiti. But he says the artwork also camouflages cracks in the walls that could indicate two previously unrecognized "ghost" doorways that may lay behind the King's burial chamber.
