Archaeologist Zahi Hawass and his team have found evidence of a tomb in which King Tutankhamun’s wife could be found.

The site is near Ay Pharaoh’s Tomb in the Kings Valley in Egypt, according to Live Science.

“We are sure the grave is here, but we are not sure who it belongs to”, Hawass said. The archaeologist argues that the tomb could belong to King Tutankhamun’s wife, Ankhesenamun. The team will excavate the residue analysis site.

Ankhesenamun lived between 1348 and 1324 BC and was married to his father Akhenaten then to his brother Smenkhakare. From the first marriage, he had a child, Princess Ankhesenpaaten Tasherit.
