Coming in Future Issues of ANCIENT EGYPT

Egypt’s Eastern Desert

Colin Reader visits the Eastern Desert and the ancient remains there, which include early rock-art and huge Roman quarries.



AE examines the reasons why mummification was practised in ancient Egypt and some of the early surviving mummies.


The Work of the Egypt Exploration Society, Past, Present and Future

In the fifth of a series of articles, Joost Hagen will describe the work of the EES at Qasr Ibrim now an island in Lake Nasser.


Napta Playa Saved

Napta Playa is a place that few people have heard about, but is hugely important to the history of Egypt. Raymond Betz explains where and what it is and how it is an interesting example of astraeoastronomy.


The Mortuary Temple of Merenptah

AE explores the little-visited temple of Merenptah and its small museum and finds that it is of special interest to anyone fascinated by the buildings and monuments of Amenhotep III.


The Re-sealing of KV62

Steve Cross reveals how the sealings from tomb KV62 (Tutankhamun) can help determine when the tomb was robbed. New evidence shows that this part of the Royal Valley was flooded in antiquity, meaning we can pin down when this tomb (and others in the immediate area, such as the recently-discovered KV63) disappeared from view and raising the possibility that there might be other tombs still to be found.


Unique to AE, the very latest News from Egypt, from our own Egypt Correspondent, Dr. Ayman Wahby Taher, complete with photos. of many of the latest discoveries. ... and, of course, all our other regular features, including Book Reviews, advance notice of Egyptological Meetings and Events, and a list of the many Egyptology Societies in the UK and abroad.
