Egyptologist Zahi Hawass has returned and believes that there is still much left to be discovered.
The former antiquities minister had dropped out of the limelight for a couple of years after being dismissed from his post but now he's back and getting ready to go on a worldwide lecture tour. Often regarded as a real-life Indiana Jones, Hawass believes that there are still many secrets to be uncovered in Egypt including more tombs in the Valley of the Kings and even a secret burial chamber in the Great Pyramid of Cheops.
Over the last few years, robots have been used to explore shafts within the pyramid that lead to what appear to be secret doors. "I really believe that Cheops chamber is not discovered yet and all the three chambers were just to deceive the thieves, and the treasures of Khufu [are] still hidden inside the Great Pyramid, and these three doors could be the key to open this burial chamber," said Hawass.
"The famous, and at times controversial, Egyptologist is free of legal charges, free to travel and is launching a worldwide lecture tour with the aim of getting tourists back to Egypt, he told LiveScience in an interview."
