    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, NOVEMBER 23 - Egyptian antiquities minister, Mamdouh el Damati, has announced that work inside Tutankhamun's tomb will start on November 26 and will last for three days. Its aim will be to discover whether there are hidden chambers inside. British archaeologist Nicholas Reeves first asked for further investigations on the tomb. The British Egyptologist claims that one of the walls of the young Pharaoh's tomb could hide the last resting place of Queen Nefertiti. The minister added that work will be carried out with modern techniques that will not damage the mausoleum's structure.
