The three-month studies were conducted by a mission from the Polytechnic University of Turin in Italy. The mission announced its results on Sunday in a presentation held as a part of the fourth International Tutankhamun Conference, taking place at the Grand Egyptian Museum, entitled Tutankhamun: Weapons and Statues.

Waziri also asserted in a press release that the mission delivered its report to the Permanent Committee for Ancient Egyptian Antiquities, in which they confirmed that there is no proof or even indicators of any existing chamber inside the tomb.

The report states, Waziri said, that there are no steps, passageways, or doorframes, which goes against the assumptions of any undiscovered attached rooms or voids behind the funeral chamber the king was buried at.

The survey, built on vertical and horizontal axes, assured that there is no existing chamber in the tomb.
