Tutankhamun's tomb to be photographed with infrared Thursday
The Antiquities Ministry has announced that Tutankhamun's tomb in Luxor will be photographed over a period of two days, starting Thursday.
Scientists will be using infrared technology, in cooperation with Cairo University's Faculty of Engineering and the Paris Institute of Heritage Preservation and Innovation, in order to detect a hidden chamber that British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves believes is Queen Nefertiti's tomb.
Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damati said permits were obtained from all incumbent authorities.
