    Inside:

    The Nile Top 5. 
    The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities proudly described 2017 as “the year of discoveries,” and it’s pretty hard to disagree. NILE Magazine has certainly enjoyed bringing you the most exciting discoveries throughout the year. Now it’s time to look back and select the Top 5 of 2017.

    King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh. 
    The word “blockbuster” should be reserved for Tutankhamun exhibitions. The young pharaoh’s world tour begins in May—and it’s a big one. Historically, Tutankhamun tours have been limited to around 50 original artefacts. This exhibition triples that. Featured in this issue of NILE are some of the spectacular key pieces from the exhibition.

    Cleopatra's Asp
    Did the famous queen really die of a snake bite? Or were snakes involved in another, more subtle way?

    Snakes 
    They weren’t always the bad guys. In ancient Egypt, they were often revered. So what happened over the centuries to give our scaley friends such a bad reputation

    Royal Tombs 
    Part 3 of our series from The Royal Tombs of Ancient Egypt—Aidan Dodson’s detailed history of the resting places of Egypt’s rulers and their families. In this issue, the pyramids get smaller, but the funerary complexes grow as we enter the final two dynasties of the Old Kingdom: the 5th and 6th.

    The Belzoni Top 3
    So we thought we knew the story of Belzoni, the sarcophagus of Seti I and Sir John Soane. Lenka Peacock presents three things that might surprise you.
    Plus, we discover the original beauty of Seti I’s tomb via an incredible recreation at the Antikenmuseum Basel.

    Thutmose IV
    Thutmose IV is often forgotten, surrounded 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? 

    Plus, The Quiz and lots more.
