Egyptian Queen Nefertiti’s Burial Chamber May Have Been Found

Neferneferuaten Nefertiti’s tomb may have been found according to reports. The Egyptian Queen was married to the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten around 1350 BC.

British archaeologist Dr Nicholas Reeves believes after studying high-resolution images of the walls of King Tutankhamun’s burial chamber in the Valley of the Kings, they have located Queen Nefertiti’s burial chamber.

“I think there are certainly some signs that there might have been some activity around those doorways,” said Joyce Tyldesley, an Egyptologist with the University of Manchester.

“Cautious evaluation of the … scans over the course of several months has yielded results which are beyond intriguing: indications of two previously unknown doorways, one set within a larger partition wall and both seemingly untouched since antiquity. The implications are extraordinary,” according to a paper published by Dr Reeves’s organization.

A radar survey helped the team of experts identify the location.

“The tomb of Tutankhamun’s was a staircase going down, then turning to the right, which identifies it, I think, as the tomb of a queen because the king’s tomb normally turns to the left, and the queen’s tomb turns to the right. That’s the first indication that we’re dealing here with the burial of a queen. The second indication is that this corridor has been enlarged. And we know why that enlargement took place in the case of Tutankhamun – because they needed to introduce through it the huge panels of the gilded shrines which surrounded his sarcophagus and coffin. So that’s the second thing. It’s a queen who had obvious pharaonic prerogatives, in that she seems to have been buried within a nest of gilded shrines, similar to those of Tutankhamun. The way we can move forward of this is very simple. A radar survey of those two walls would reveal whether behind them there is a void. If I’m wrong, I’m wrong, but if I’m right, we’re now faced with the extraordinary prospect of coming face-to-face with an intact Egyptian pharaonic tomb – and not the tomb of any old king that nobody’s ever heard of, but the tomb of Nefertiti, a woman actually who was far more than a pretty face,”  Reeves told NPR.

Nefertiti and her husband Akhenaten were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshiped one god only, Aten, or the sun disc. A form of ancient Babylonian Mystery Religion.

The first recorded Sun god in history is the wicked ruler Nimrod of Babylon, who was the first to wear a golden crown on his head representing the power of the Sun. When he died, his mother and wife Semiramis, also known as Ishtar, ordered the people to worship the Sun in rememberance of Nimrod. This is where we get the name for the first day of the week Sunday from. There is evidence to support that Baal, Molech, Osiris, Zeus, Apollo and many other deities are variations of Nimrods story of forming the world’s first one world government.
