It’s large, and no one knows whether it’s a chamber of archeological significance, or possible a gap left to reduce pressure on the ancient structure:

There's also an account in the Guardian but I prefer the one you've linked to. It's intriguing and I'd like to think it's not just a big hole. I get the impression we may have to wait a long time to find out.

I bet it's nothing. $10, any takers?

>4 timspalding:: a mere $10 suggests you're not all that confident. I'd go $100 against if I thought we might have an answer within the next few years. But I suspect we won't. And when I say I believe "nothing" is wrong it's not because I expect there will be new Tutankhamun or a treasure hoard but because I think we may discover a reason for the presence of this cavity, or perhaps some items of archaeological significance even if only hieroglyphs or a stonemason's hammer.

It's full of very sharp razor blades and unspoiled bananas. ;)

Not what I was hoping for but I suppose really not a surprise.

>8 PossMan: I saw the article in the Washington Post and was disappointed.

They'll find other chambers when tourism is slowing down. Don't worry

>10 Macumbeira: That's a wry comment, but I never thought of it that way. I'm sure there was an increase of tourism when the possibility of the chamber was announced. The situation reminds me of Geraldo Rivera's over-hyped and anti-climatic Al Capone chamber from a few years back.

>12 Macumbeira: Well, don't get too comfortable or some future archeologist or Geraldo may use your secret lair for their own gains.

Here we go again:-

I'd really really love this to be true but I'm afraid like previous reports it will come to nothing.
