According to the resource «LiveScience», the famous Egyptologist Zahi Hawass starts world lecture tour in order to once again draw the attention of tourists to Egypt.
Zahi Hawass told the magazine that he believes in the existence of some fantastic discoveries that you can still do in the Valley of the Kings, as well as exploring the secret burial chamber inside the Great Pyramid built by the pharaoh Khufu, also known as Cheops — it is possible that there are treasures.
This is a real life turn for the archaeologist who just a few months ago, was under investigation by the ban on traveling outside Egypt. He was charged with a lot of charges related to his tenure as head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt under the previous government of Hosni Mubarak. This position allows the illegal transport of antiquity and spend public funds, so the investigation, he was forbidden to leave the country.
Hawass was the head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities for 10 years and became the first minister of Egypt at the end of the Mubarak regime. Revolution could dislodge Mubarak in February 2011. and Hawass was fired from his post after a few months. The accusations were false, and now they are completely removed.
In interviews and in his lecture, Hawass said how much he admired the work of the robot in the Great Pyramid, which has been going on for two decades. One room is called the "Queen of the House" consists of two shafts, which are allowed to enter the pyramid, however, make it impossible to go back. Robots have found these trees, and determined that they contain doorways with brass handles. These trees can point the way to a secret burial chamber, where the buried Khufu (Cheops). Although the three rooms of the pyramid have been investigated, the tomb of the pharaoh so far have failed to find.
Egyptologist discovered some interesting facts. For example, it was found that the brains of Tutankhamun was dried and not withdrawn prior to the embalming process is considered from the time of the Greek historians.
Hawass also full of enthusiasm for the search for new tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Over the past decade have been found two new tombs, K63 and K64, so the probability of new discoveries. "The Tomb of Thutmose II has not been found, the tomb of Ramesses VIII is not found, the entire royal dynasty 1550-1292 BC was buried in the valley, and their graves are still missing, "- says the lecturer, adding -" this could be a new era in archeology.
