Exclusive Video: Minister of Antiquities talks about the latest news on the search behind the walls of King Tut's tomb

On Wednesday evening Luxor celebrated the 93rd anniversary of the discovery of King Tutankhamon’s tomb which was held at Hatshepsut temple at Deir El Bahari.
At the event, the editor of Luxor Times was talking with the Minister of Antiquities, Dr. Mamdouh El Damaty. Most of the conversation was regular friendly chat “off the record”.

Then the minister was asked to answer one question on video for Luxor Times readers without prior notice of what the question would be.
You can watch the short video below.

Bottom line is:  The Infrared Thermo graphic scanning which will take place on Thursday and Friday is a primary step on the way to examine very carefully what could be behind the walls of KV62 (tomb of the Golden King) according to Dr. Nicholas Reeves’ hypothesis.
The confirmed results will be announced when the ministry officials see appropriate and announce the following step.

Videos of Dr. Nicholas Reeves and the Minister of Antiquities talking about the search for “the hidden chambers behind the walls of King Tut’s tomb” can be found on Luxor Times Youtube Channel HERE
