The tomb of King Tutankhamun has become extremely famous because of the evidence that there is inner nectar. But recently, the Egyptian Archaeological Department came up with a conclusion that all stunned.
Since 2015, the scientific community has been boiling for the tomb of pharaoh Tutankhamun (or King Tut). The reason is because many polls show that this 3,300-year-old grave contains these.
No one knows where the secret will lead, but most think it will be the grave of very important figures in history related to King Tut, like and.
The location of the two secret passages follows Watanabe's data.
For example, archaeologist Nicholas Reeves from the University of Arizona claimed that the walls of King Tut's mausoleum showed signs of a door. Or as the radar exploration of Japanese professor Hirokatsu Watanabe in 2016 also confirmed that.
Even the minister of archeology of Egypt at that time, Mamdouh Eldamaty, also affirmed: "We can be sure that up to 90% of us have a secret here."
Eldamaty resigned in March 2016. Still, his claim is still valid.
Although very eager to explore, but in front of tombs with great historical value, it is obvious that the Egyptians were cautious. They want to confirm in advance through surveys thanks to modern technology.
Inside the pharaoh Tomb, Tutankhamun.
Therefore, in 2016, a second radar survey was conducted. But contrary to Watanabe's study, this poll does not produce the same results. Moreover, Watanabe's data has never been published, because he has improved it so that no one can analyze it on their own.
After all, no trace of it was found during the second survey.
And recently, a third survey has just begun. The leader is Francesco Porcelli - an archaeologist of Polytechnic University (Turin, Italy).
This time Porcelli used a ground-sweep radar - a kind of probe to find underground loopholes - and thoroughly scanned the grave.
The machine has a dual antenna system, scanning both axes, to find any gaps inside it.
The Egyptian Ministry of Archeology recently issued the following notice:
"Dr. Porcelli gave the following result: no fragments from natural rocks to stone walls were found by the GPR radar system, nor is there evidence of a single door. ".
"The conclusion is highly credible: the theory of a secret in the tomb of pharaoh Tutankhamun is not supported by data from GPR ."

Porcelli's team also hypothesized the reason why Watanabe's data was wrong. They believed that limestone-covered walls might have not absorbed the radar wave, but pushed it in a different direction. Meaning, radar waves have traveled along the wall before responding to the receiver, creating a form of confusing data.
In short, with this research, there will be no more walls in the mausoleum! The truth is that there are no underground passages, doors or paths in this grave. Nefertiti or Ankhesenamun graves will need more time to search.
Previous theories suggest that Tutankhamun's tomb was built for his stepmother Queen Nefertiti, who died in 1330 BC.
But after the sudden death of the pharaoh in 1323 BC, the function of the tomb was changed. The hypothesis is that Nefertiti's body was placed in a secret room, then buried.
