" It’s Official : Tut’s Tomb Has No Hidden Chambers After All " (National Geographic - Kristin Romey, 06.05.2018)
Quote:
The third radar scan of the pharaoh's burial site conclusively shows that no additional mysteries lurk immediately behind its walls. ...

... "The finding is that there is no evidence of doors or empty spaces beyond the funeral chamber up to four meters [13 feet]," Porcelli tells National Geographic. "It's disappointing, but this is the result. This is conclusive in our point of view," he adds.

Porcelli suspects that previous radar anomalies detected in the pharaoh's burial chamber, which raised the exciting possibility that Nefertiti's tomb might lie beyond it, were the result of "ghost signals"—rogue radar reflections originating in front of the walls, not behind them. ...

Part of me feels it's a shame they did not find an added room. It would have been great if Nefertiti would have been buried behind Tutankhamen's burial chamber.
At the same time his tomb was thrown together so quickly that i guess we should have known it was unlikely.
We still need to wait for the discovery of Nefertiti and some/most of her daughters.

Ay probably did not bury Tut in the tomb that was being prepared for him but in a smaller tomb intended for a female either from his family or his court.

Im hoping they will discover Nefertiti and Meritaten in the next few decades though.

As a small addendum ...

Fischanger / Catanzariti / Comina / Sambuelli / Morelli / Barsuglia / Ellaithy / Porcelli : Geophysical anomalies detected by electrical resistivity tomography in the area surrounding
Tutankhamun’s tomb
. - In: Journal of Cultural Heritage 36. - 2019. - pp. 63 - 71.
Quote:
From the Conclusions:

"(..) The first anomaly, denoted by Anomaly 1, lies below the hill where the tombs KV62 and KV9 have been carved. Given its location and depth below the ground level, it is unlikely that the area where Anomaly 1 is located was
interested by recent excavations or recent human activities. Therefore, if anthropic, the origin of this Anomaly should be associated with Ancient Egypt. The anomaly’s enhanced resistivity may indicate a void volume. Anomaly 1 does not appear to be directly connected with KV62.The second anomaly, denoted by Anomaly 2, is also particularly interesting, although care is in order as it is located close to an area interested by previous archaeological excavations. We exclude at this stage that Anomaly 2 can be linked directly with KV62. (..)"

From the Main Text:

"(..) The aim of the research reported in this article was to carry out preliminary geophysical prospections in the area surrounding Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings (Luxor, Egypt), using electrical resistivity tomographic (ERT) methods. This ERT investigation, carried out in May 2017, was considered as preparatory to ground penetrating radar (GPR) surveys that were later performedby our Team from the inside of Tutankhamun’s tomb in February 2018 (and whose results are yet to be published). (..)

(..) Of more interest are two high resistivity anomalies evidenced in the maps and in the sections. They do not appear to be correlated with known underground cavities.

The first, denoted by Anomaly 1 in Fig. 8a and b, defines a resistive body extending, at 174 m a.s.l., about 5 m in the NE-SW direction and about 8 m in the NW-SE direction. The centroid of this anomaly is roughly at about 6 m b.g.l.

The second, denoted by Anomaly 2 in Fig. 8c and d, has the shape of an elongated ellipsoid roughly centered at depth of about 5 m below the valley floor. Its extension, at 167 m a.s.l., is about 15 m in the NE-SW direction and about 4 m in the NW-SE direction. ERT sections in Fig. 9b and c allow to further appreciating the horizontal extensions and the vertical positions of these two anomalies.

Anomaly 1 is located at a horizontal distance of about 12 meters from the North wall of the KV62 funerary chamber (Fig. 8b). In the EW section shown in Fig. 9c, its elevation ranges between 170 m and 178 m a.s.l. Therefore, the lowest level of this anomaly is slightly above the elevation of
the ceiling of KV62 (166 m a.s.l.), while its highest level is about 12 meters above it. Anomaly 2 is located under the flat area between the foot of the cliff and the modern-day KV62 entrance. If these anomalies are of anthropic origin, their high resistivity may indicate void volumes, with potentially interesting implications. These anomalies are close to KV62, but do not appear to be directly connected with it. It is interesting to note that the centroid of the volume corresponding to Anomaly 1 appears to be located roughly along the same NS alignment of the antechamber and the funerary chamber of KV62 (see, in particular, Fig. 9c).
The depth and size of Anomaly 1 appear consistent with a void having an extension comparable with the one of KV62.

Anomaly 2 is also particularly interesting. It is located North-East of the KV62 burial chamber, about 5 m below ground level, and it extends somewhat beyond the hill to the flat section between the modern-day entrance of KV62 and the shade canopy. The interpretation of this Anomaly is at present rather dubious, as it is located in an area interested by previous archaeological excavations. We exclude at this stage that Anomaly 2 can be linked directly with KV62. (..)"

Greetings, Lutz.

Thank you for sharing. Hopefully some formal investigations into these two anomalies will take place in the near future.

This is good. I was a little puzzled when before they released the results of the latest scans inside KV62, they had mentioned voids in the vicinity, but these were never mentioned in the scan results and we all went back to sleep thinking "nothing to see here". Hope lives...

The work, under the direction of the Italians, was already planned before Reeves release. As I remember, the entire Valley should be examined in this way.

Greetings, Lutz.

There must be a lot to consider if the anomalies are so close to existing tombs.

How risky would it be?

Thank you for the links above, definitely worth taking the time to read. From:

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/326490081_ACCEPTED_FOR_PUBLICATION_IN_JOURNAL_OF_CULTURAL_HERITAGE_Geophysical_Anomalies_detected_by_Electrical_Resistivity_Tomography_in_the_area_surrounding_Tutankhamun

"It is interesting to note that the centroid of the volume corresponding to Anomaly 1 appears to be located roughly along the same NS alignment of the antechamber and the funerary chamber of KV62 (see, in particular, Figure 9-c). The depth and size of Anomaly 1 appear consistent with a void having an extension comparable with the one of KV62."

The report also concludes that Anomaly 1 represents Ancient Egyptian and not modern human activity. They are more cautious about Anomaly 2 because that area had previously received more archaeological attention.

Neferneferuaten appears to have reinstated the worship of Amun, if the graffito from the tomb of Pairi is to be believed.
