In this issue:

The Face of Nefertiti?
The head of a mummy dubbed the “Younger Lady” was recently scanned and modelled. It’s a remarkable portrait, but is it Nefertiti? We look at the cases for and against the connection.

Tutankhamun's tomb: The final scan results.
There's nothing there! Read the official announcement.

The North Wall of Tutankhamun's tomb: The New Interpretation.
Does the lack of hidden chambers mean that Tutankhamun’s tomb is out of surprises? Far from it. In fact, Nicholas Reeves was on the right track. We reveal that KV 62 WAS built for Nefertiti after all.

Luxor Temple's New Face.
Another of Ramesses II's colossal statues stands again. Or should that be "Amenhotep III's colossal statue"?

The Royal Tombs—Part Four: The Middle Kingdom.
After a century in the wilderness, royal pyramids are back—but not as we knew them.

The Celestial Dung Beetle.
What is it about the humble scarab that led the ancient Egyptians to make it the most popular amulet in Egyptian history?

Plus, The Nile Quiz, Looking Back and lots more.

Meresankh III: Queen for Eternity

In this issue:

The Nile Top 5. The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities described 2017 as “the year of discoveries”. So what were the Top 5 discoveries of 2017?

King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh. We feature some of the spectacular pieces from the new exhibition.

Did Cleopatra really die of a snake bite?

Aidan Dodson’s The Royal Tombs of Ancient Egypt. The pyramids get smaller, but the funerary complexes grow as we enter the 5th and 6th Dynasties.

Three things that might surprise you about Giovanni Belzoni, Sir John Soane and the sarcophagus of Seti I. Plus, we discover the original beauty of Seti I’s tomb via an incredible recreation at the Antikenmuseum Basel.

Snakes weren’t always the bad guys. In ancient Egypt, they were often revered. So what happened?

Thutmose IV is often forgotten, sandwiched as he is by the great warrior king Amenhotep II, and the “sun king”, Amenhotep III. Yet it may be that this king’s legacy outshone them both. We might well ask: would there have been an Akhenaten without a Thutmose IV?
