If you studied sincerely in school, you know that Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun in 1922.
Nearly, 100 years after the tomb was officially opened, it seems it has even more to offer that is yet to be unearthed. Archaeologists have discovered hidden rooms behind the walls of the burial chambers.
And so, it isn't a surprise that this discovery is a hype.
Some member from Tutankhamun's family might be resting here. It is believed that the legendary Queen Nefertiti was Tutankhamun's mother. But, those are only whispered rumors which say that she might be resting in her son's tomb.
"We can say more than 90 percent that the chambers are there. But, I never start the next step until I'm 100 percent", said Egyptian Antiquities Minister Mamdouh El-Damaty.
Egypt's tourism industry has been badly affected due to the unrest there.
This might come as a ray of hope to bring the positive effects of tourism and a breakthrough being discovered.
