Egyptian researchers have said there is a 90% chance that hidden chambers will be found within King Tutankhamun's tomb. The discovery of a new chamber could shine fresh light on one of ancient Egypt's most turbulent times, and one prominent researcher has theorised that the remains of Queen Nefertiti might be inside.

British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves theorises that Tutankhamun, who died at the age of 19, may have been rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally Nefertiti's tomb.
