Tutankhamun's Tomb

Postby dragonsteeth » Tue 01 Dec 2015 3:28 pm

It has announced that the Egyptians now support Nick Reeves belief that there are secret walled up chambers in Tutankhamun's tomb.
Velikovsky suggested in his book 'Oedipus and Akhenaten' that a pit near the front of Tut's tomb might have been used to bury alive Meritaten the widowed Queen of Smenkhere.
Drawing a parallel with the Oedipus story Velikovsky claimed that Nefertiti's eldest daughter was punished for burying the body of her deceased husband against the wishes of Ay.
I believe that Queen Meritaten has already been found in the form of the mummy known as the Younger Woman, so hopefully any secret chambers in the tomb will contain burials from Amarna rather than a walled up Princess.
The mummies of Queen Tiye and of Nefertiti have still not been found in spite of many claims to the contrary, so any further discoveries from within the tomb should prove to be sensational.

Tutankhamun's Tomb

Postby dragonsteeth » Mon 26 Dec 2016 7:26 pm

Last year we had continuous discussion whether Nicholas Reeves was correct to propose that a second burial was concealed behind the wall of Tutankhamun's tomb.
In his book Oedipus and Akhenaten Velikovsky talks of a rock pit dug out in front of Tut's tomb. Could this rock pit and the odd remnants found within be linked to a previous burial in the Tutankhamun tomb that is now concealed behind a false doorway of the young Pharaoh's golden burial place?
The original Valley of the Kings tomb which may have been started for Aye could have been used first as a burial site for burials such as that of Nefertiti which had been transferred from the abandoned city of Akhetaten.
