NILE #16. OCTOBER-NOVEMBER 2018. THE ONE WITH NESPAWERSHEFYT’S COFFIN ON THE COVER

Nile 16, Cover 1B 35%.jpg
NILE #16. October-November 2018 - Single Issue
from 4.90

Tomb Robbery and Coffin Reuse
Was a coffin really meant for eternity? Was all tomb robbery a lawless abhorrence? We look at Kara Cooney’s study into “legal” coffin reuse. (Spoiler alert: there’s a lot of it!) 

Kleopatra Selene
The melodrama of Cleopatra VII’s political and not-so-private life has been well explored. What is less well known is that Cleopatra and Mark Antony had three children, including a daughter, Kleopatra Selene. 

The Unlucky Mummy
So, you think you know the story of the Unlucky Mummy? Think again. We explore the myths and the surprising truth about THAT mummy board. 

Spirit Birds
Not only could Egypt’s birds represent a specific deity, but also a number of concepts that were crucial to the Egyptians enjoying a successful afterlife. 

The Royal Tombs
In this final abridged instalment of Aidan Dodson’s The Royal Tombs of Ancient Egypt, the New Kingdom pharaohs embrace Senwosret III’s innovation, separate their tombs and temples, and head underground. 

What's New?
Alexandria’s “Big Black Sarcophagus” surprises with some impressed gold sheets, and the world’s oldest cheese yet discovered turns out to be the real evil.

Plus, The Nile Crossword (NEW!), Looking Back and lots more.

Nile 15, Cover 1B 35%.jpg
NILE #15. August-September 2018 - Single Issue
from 4.90

Golden Treasures of the Pharaohs
Gold. For the Egyptians it was proof that eternity was real. We feature some spectacular golden treasures from Cairo’s Egyptian Museum, now on show at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

Nefertiti's Wedding.
What are the clues in Tutankhamun's tomb that point to the union between Nefertiti and her king?

That Black Sarcophagus.
For 17 days in July, the Twittersphere obsessed over an ominous, black sarcophagus that had been unearthed in Alexandria. Was there an ancient evil inside? The truth turned out to be far nastier.

Life in a Pyramid Builders' Town.
One site more than any other gives us a unique insight into the lives of those who built and maintained a pyramid: that of Lahun, built by King Senwosret II around 1870 B.C.

Seti I's strange bedfellows.
Ever since the discovery of his tomb, Seti I has been bizarrely associated with pseudo-archaeology and mysticism, which have dogged the memory of one of Egypt’s greatest rulers.

A Pharaoh's Legacy.
King Ptolemy II could never have guessed what his greatest gift to Egypt would be.

NILE #14. JUNE-JULY 2018. THE ONE WITH THE REAL FACE OF NEFERTITI (MAYBE) ON THE COVER

Nile 14, Cover 1B 35%.jpg
NILE #14. June-July 2018
from 4.90

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!

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.

The Divine Falcon
The most commonly-depicted deity in the entire history of ancient Egypt isn't Osiris, Amun or Hathor—it's the divine falcon.

Hieroglyphs: Who Translated them First?
Jean-François Champollion may have been beaten by medieval Arab scholars centuries before.

Saving Ancient Egypt
A new history of Khonsu Temple and a new look for a statue of Amenhotep III: the remarkable results of the American Research Center in Egypt's conservation field schools.

Meresankh III: Queen for Eternity
The Giza Project at Harvard University is building a 3D virtual reconstruction of the Giza Plateau as it may have looked in 2500 B.C. We explore one of the digitally recreated tombs: that of Khufu's granddaughter.
