Dr. Mustafa Waziri, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, said Sunday that the Italian team conducted extensive studies with ground-penetrating radar inside the cemetery proved that there were no rooms or even signs of any entrances or doors Rooms that contradict the theory that assumed the existence of corridors or adjacent rooms or inside the burial chamber of King Tutankhamun.

The results of GPR studies carried out by a Japanese and American scientific expeditions in 2015 and 2016 are different from that of the British archaeologist Nicholas Reeves.
