    Inside:

    The great Big Void in the Great Pyramid.
    The first comprehensive report on the ScanPyramids discovery: an enormous “void” above the Great Pyramid's Grand Gallery, and of similar size and shape. Already Egypt's largest and most complex pyramid, the Great Pyramid of Giza just got even more intriguing. Plus, why you can conceivably look forward to even more exciting news.

    Sekhmet 
    The goddess Sekhmet was one of the fiercer members of the Egyptian pantheon. A happy Sekhmet, however, carried great healing powers. To the Egyptians, it wasn't at all confusing to regard Sekhmet as the fiery agent of Ra's fury, AND the patron goddess of healers and physicians. We get to know an often misunderstood deity.

    Ramesses III's Sarcophagus Lid
    It was one of Ramesses III's masterpieces, designed to protect the king's mummified body and help launch his deified soul into eternity. So why did the museum that held the lid want to swap it for a pretty statue?

    Fascinating Pyramids
    Rarely-seen artefacts from museums across Europe, gathered together in the Liechtenstein National Museum. Explore pieces spanning the entire length of Egyptian and Nubian pyramid-building.

    A Woman's Afterlife
    Things were far from egalitarian in ancient Egypt. In fact, women faced a biological barrier to the afterlife: to be reborn, a deceased woman had to briefly turn into a man. 

    Soulful Creatures
    Modern medical imaging meets ancient Egyptian animal mummies, and sheds new light on the crucial way that animals could deliver messages directly to the ears of the gods.

    Sennedjem
    The spectacular family vault of Sennedjem helps provide a new perspective on Theban life on the cusp of the Third Intermediate Period.

    Plus, The Quiz and lots more.
