King Tutankhamun tomb's hidden chamber discovered through testing temperature | Daily Mail Online

An investigation of King Tutankhamun's tomb may have led to the indication of hidden chambers, according to a statement from Egypt's antiquity ministry.

A team from Cairo University's Faculty of Engineering and a Paris-based organization called the Heritage, Innovation and Preservation Institute used infrared thermography to measure the temperature of each of the walls of the tomb.

Preliminary analysis of the non-invasive search showed that one area of the northern wall was a different temperature than other areas, which is a potential sign of a hidden chamber.

The completion of the experiment comes, on the 93rd anniversary of the find, and at the same time that researchers unveiled newly colorized photos of the discovery of the tomb.
