The Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Egypt recently announced the results of tests inside the famous tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun. A team of scientists from Italy's University of Turin used ground penetrating radar to study the walls of the tomb, and have concluded that no hidden chambers exist. A British Egyptologist, Nicholas Reeves, had proposed a theory that the tomb of Nefertiti, the wife of Tutankhamun's father King Akhenaten, was in a secret chamber behind one of the walls in King Tut's tomb. The theory postulated that when Tutankhamun died at a young age, his burial was rushed and the tomb built for Nefertiti was used. Previous scans of the walls had suggested the possibility of a hidden chamber; however, the new scans have demonstrated conclusively that none exists. Tutankhamun was the Pharaoh of Egypt circa 1332–1323, according to standard Egyptian chronology, which places him during the time of the judges, according to biblical chronology.
