The Nile Top 5. The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities described 2017 as “the year of discoveries,” and it’s pretty hard to disagree. 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, the sarcophagus of Seti I and Sir John Soane. 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 Thutmose's legacy outshone them both. Would there have been an Akhenaten without a Thutmose IV?

Plus, The Quiz and lots more. Enjoy your Nile time!
