    In this issue...

    Tutankhamun in London
    The blockbuster touring exhibition hits London. We give you a peek inside.

    The latest news from Egypt
    Is it a good idea to move four sandstone sphinxes from Karnak Temple to help embellish Tahrir Square? Plus, the interior of Saqqara's Step Pyramid will soon be open for visitors! And it's nothing like any other pyramid.

    Toasting Tut!
    Did Tutankhamun prefer red or white wine? Actually, both. But not for the taste.

    The Tomb of Raya (TT 159)
    Luxor's newest tomb to open has some intriguing decorations, including an odd-looking cat, a very successful fisherman, and some text that may have been written on the very day of Raya's funeral, around 3,200 years ago.

    Shipping Heritage
    The 19th century saw two colossal missions to haul Ramesses II’s head and Cleopatra’s Needle to England.


    Egyptian Art Reconstructed

    How did Egypt’s fabulously-decorated tombs look when they were brand new? Floyd Chapman recreates another tomb scene in full colour to help us appreciate the ancient workmanship and understand the symbols and hieroglyphs. This time it’s from the tomb of Khaemhat (TT 57).


    Grasshoppers

    You’d be surprised at how often the ancient Egyptians talked about grasshoppers. But did they consider grasshoppers as a plague-like curse or as a blessing? And could the king really get to heaven as a grasshopper?
