Is this really current news? He did precisely this back around 2010. The whole area was stripped back to the bedrock and he found nothing.
The WV guardian told me he was looking in the wrong place ;)

Hawass may be disappointed if he hopes to find Ankhesenamun's remains.

The mummy known as KV 21a has been linked to the foetuses in KV 62.....albeit by sketchy DNA analysis....which would indicate that it may be the mummy of Ankhesenamun.

Unless Tut had another wife.....or the foetuses were from another sexual partner....or the KV 55 mummy is not Akhenaton.....or the DNA evidence is suspect ( very likely in my view )......or......
.
Take your pick :lol:
