    Inside:

    Oldest Prosthetic Found
    Discovered in a looted tomb on the west bank at Luxor, a wooden toe, still attached to its owner, is surprisingly sophisticated—and very likely to be the oldest working artificial body part in human history.

    Heliopolis
    The statue of Psamtek I emerging from the mud of ancient Heliopolis made headlines earlier this year. Dr. Dietrich Raue takes us through the amazing discoveries the Egyptian-German team have made there recently.

    Napoleon
    Every achievement in Egyptology over the past 200 years owes a debt of gratitude to Napoleon Bonaparte and his military-led “study tour” of Egypt. So why isn’t Napoleon given the credit as the “Father of Egyptology”?

    The Royal Tombs of Ancient Egypt - Part Two
    A history of Egypt’s royal burial places —from the very dawn of history down to Egypt’s absorption into the Roman Empire, 3,000 years later. Here we feature the 3rd and 4th Dynasties - the age of the giant pyramids.

    Magic
    In ancient Egypt, magic was very, very real, and it was how you made things happen in everyday life: dreams, hopes, protection from evil—even revenge.

    The Curious Case of Obaysch the Egyptian Hippopotamus
    As powerful as it was, and as ill-tempered as it could be, the hippopotamus was both feared and revered by the ancient Egyptians. In this issue, we look at the hippo in myth and magic, and examine its use in Egyptian medicine.
