Abstract (in english)
   The paper focused on the gravity effect of one of the most important tombs in Luxor, the Tomb of Nefertari in the Valley of the Queens. The main aim of the paper is to know if there are other buried rooms under or around the main known body of the tomb. This can be realized by comparing the calculated gravity effect of the tomb with observed gravity data. The surrounding area of the tomb was covered by gravity profiles that cross the central axis of the investigated tomb. The tomb was modelled using 2.5D forward modelling. The gravity effect of the whole body of the tomb was calculated at different depth levels. The results showed that, there is no considerable difference between the observed anomaly resulting from the tomb and that modeled calculated. This leads us to conclude that, no other features under or around the well known configuration of the tomb.
   In additions, the gravity survey was acquired on the other area closed to tomb of Nefertari as a case study for unknown areas trying to find any other hidden features.
