What will the discovery of metal artifacts in King Tut's tomb lead archeologists to conclude?

  • There is probably another tomb, hidden behind King Tut's tomb, which could change the way this period in history is viewed

    Evidence in the tomb of King Tut indicates that there is most likely another tomb behind its walls. Radar scans reveal that there are open spaces behind the elaborately painted walls of the tomb. There are passageways and door opening which are covered by plaster and painted over, and it is thought that the tomb is also the burial place of Queen Nefertiti, or King Tut's stepmother. Given the enormous historical significance and the possibility that many of the artifacts may in fact be the treasures of Queen Nefertiti, everything known about this period will have to be reevaluated.

  • There could be hidden rooms.

    Radar scans have possibly found metal and organic material and it suggests that there could be 2 hidden burial chambers. They believe they could find other family members of King Tut and that they could still possibly be intact. Some think it could possibly be the burial chamber of Queen Nefertiti.

  • Metal artifacts found in king Tut's tomb will reveal little.

    Metal artifacts found in King Tut's tomb will reveal little new knowledge. These artifacts will most likely be no different than artifacts that have already been discovered. The only reason this is newsworthy is because they discovered a new area of the tomb that had previously been undiscovered due to fears of damaging the tomb.

  • It raises more questions.

    The discovery of metal artifacts won't allow archeologists to conclude anything about King Tut or the time in history, because there is no way to know for sure when these things were put in the tomb. Were they there when King Tut was buried? We don't know. Until we know this, it's impossible to draw historical conclusions from it.
