Sorry for the many previous repeat posts. Technical difficulties. I wish I could edit the extra posts out.

Thanks for that Ikon. Regardless of what is there, it is very exciting to think there is more to discover.

Anything from tarps and tools left behind by workers who were told to close up an unfinished room in a hurry because they were burying the king sooner than they expected to another royal burial, Nefertiti herself?

I'm not a big Armana groupie but the suspense is killing me!

Or Smenkhare if he/she's not Nefertiti or (gasp!) Akhenaton himself (if he's not KV55).

What a mental image! That would be hysterical after all the hype.

Wouldn't it of made sense to use space in unfinished rooms to not jam everything together? Maybe put the chariots there? And has any unfinished Chambers ever been found abandoned and sealed off?

A circumstance to which I have repeatedly hint ... To my knowledge, not in the Valley of the Kings or anywhere else in Egypt.

Let's suppose that another chamber is indeed found and something of significance is discovered inside it. If that happens, will there be a massive re-examination of all the royal tombs? After all, if something new could be found in a tomb as famous as this one, could new discoveries await in tombs that are less examined?

I don't know if anyone remembers but Geraldo Rivera had this big TV special about a secret room once back in the day. It was all quite suspenseful up until they broke down the wall.

The hype was that notorious gangster Al Capone had left stacks and stacks of his ill gotten gains in a hidden room the basement of a building he once owned and used as his headquarters--or if you were of a ghoulish turn of mine, maybe the bodies of some of his former business partners. At any rate, all they found were some old whiskey bottles and other junk.

Archaeologically all it proved was that it confirmed what everyone already knew, Al Capone had engaged in a bootlegging business back during Prohibition.

Geraldo Rivera's career never recovered.

I have no idea what they're going to find here. Maybe Nefertiti, maybe one of Akhenaton's daughters, maybe my old tarps and beer jars. At any rate broken jars with the names of kings and dates written on them would be pretty cool from an historical perspective.

The latter occurs, for decades. At first we have the "Theban Mapping Project". By the way, the idea to make a replikat of KV 62 goes back to an initiative from the TMP. (And next to that the work by Kent Weeks and his team in KV 5.)

Then we have also working for decades now in the Valley, "Pacific Lutheran University Valley of the Kings Project" and "University of Basel Kings' Valley Project".

Greetings, Lutz.

This is very exciting news to me it really is I wonder what could be behind these wall. Personally, I don't think it's Queen Nefertiti but I do however think that this could be the secret burial chamber of the mysterious Smenkhare who still know little of or it could be a cache of Queens post the Amarna Period.

The bodies of all of Amenhotep III's daughters has yet to been found (except one excuse me) We could definitely be looking at a Cache here but who am I to say for certain that this is a cache, We just might have to wait and see.

Agreed. Any object, however insignificant, will be enlightening from a historical standpoint.
