Further analysis is needed of the tomb of pharaoh Tutankhamun to determine if the resting place also contains the remains of legendary beauty Queen Nefertiti, Egypt's antiquities minister said Thursday.Reeves, professor of archaeology at the University of Arizona, believes one door of Tutankhamun's tomb could conceal the burial place of Nefertiti.According to him, Tutankhamun, who died unexpectedly, was buried hurriedly in an underground chamber probably not intended for him.Anani said Thursday that analysis would determine the thickness of a possible wall behind the funerary chamber.
