Breaking news Another new tomb in the Valley of the Kings: ‘KV64’ – II

ARTP first encountered evidence of a second anomaly in the central area of the Valley of the Kings in the autumn of 2000, located at a point close to the southeast corner of the modern flood-prevention wall around the Tutankhamun-tomb entrance and a short distance to the north of KV63 (see Fig. 6).

The radar readings generated by our equipment were uniformly strong and impressive (Fig. 5) – even more so than the data which in 2000 first alerted ARTP to the existence of KV63 (Fig. 4).

As analysed by our radar specialist Hirokatsu Watanabe it seems all but certain (on analogy with the KV63 radar evidence) that the new data identify the presence of another tomb at some considerable depth – ‘KV64’.
