    Inside:

    A Sphinx With No Name
    One of the star attractions in the Open Air Museum at Memphis is the Alabaster Sphinx.
    It’s been over a century since the sphinx was discovered by a team working for Flinders Petrie, yet we are little closer to putting a name to the statue.

     Not Abducted
    “All’s fair in love and division of finds”. Was the famous bust of Nefertiti “smuggled” out of Egypt by a tricky excavation team? This controversial article argues “no”; the bust made its way to Berlin with Egypt’s blessing.

    Water World
    The British Museum’s blockbuster exhibition, “Sunken Cities”, is finishing soon. In this issue we showcase more of the wonders retrieved from the lost cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus.

    Thutmose III and the Battle of Armageddon
    In 1457 B.C., the 25-year-old King of Egypt enjoyed a military victory so decisive that it inspired visions of the apocalyptic Armageddon. What exactly did Thutmose III do to be remembered by a writer of the Bible?

    Divine Felines
    From pampered pets to symbols of divinities and messengers of the gods, cats have been a big part of ancient Egypt from the beginning. More than 80 objects from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum are on show at the Dallas Museum of Art. We present a few of our favourite feline pieces.

    The Mystery of the Singing Giants
    Roman nobility travelled far to be mesmerised by the giant Theban statue and the song that sometimes sprang from it at dawn. What are the facts behind the legend of the “singing Memnon”?
