Seems like it has been a while since there has been the potential for such an important archaeological find, but...

The Egyptian pharaoh queen Nefertiti could be buried in two newly-discovered rooms in King Tutankhamun's tomb, according to a British archaeologist.
Nicholas Reeves said on Egyptian TV that two extra rooms had been found hidden in the walls of the tomb.
Egyptian officials say they hope to give the go-ahead to use radar scans to test Mr Reeves' theory that Nefertiti's remains are hidden in one of them.
She was queen of Egypt during the 14th Century BC.
Mr Reeves believes the remains of Tutankhamun, who died 3,000 years ago aged 19, may have been rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally Nefertiti's tomb.
The remains of Tutankhamun, who may have been Nefertiti's son, were found in 1922.

Even if wrong, and not Nefertiti, considering how intact Tutankhamun's tomb was, it certainly at least is very likely that these new chambers will contain several interesting finds. Should certainly be a nice tourism windfall for Egypt.

Could be one hell of a find! And to find another famous Egyptian ruler in an untouched chamber would be fascinating!

This is really cool! There have been other almost Nefertiti sightings, but to find ANY new artifacts would be amazing.
