Has Nefertiti’s tomb been found?

One of the mysteries of the Amarna period is where did the bodies of the heretic pharaoh Akhenaten and Nefertiti go? Nicholas Reeves, a respected Egyptologist at the University of Arizona, thinks he has an answer. (See his academic paper here.)

The find was made possible by the amazing Theban Mapping Project that is going “down to bedrock in the Valley of the Kings. Thank God that the barbarian Moslem Brotherhood government was overthrown before they could destroy the site as their co-barbarians is ISIS destroyed the Temple of Bel in Palmyra.
