Many thanks to lovely Mark Morgan for sending me the following information.
The August/September issue of Current World Archaeology is devoted to Egypt. Over the years, some of the greatest discoveries in this extraordinary land have been made by members of the Egypt Exploration Society (EES).
We report from North Saqqara, where some of their most remarkable discoveries have been uncovered. Indeed, it is there, in the shadow of the Pyramid of King Djoser ( shown on the front cover), that they have found a cemetery dedicated not to mummified people but to mummified animals. Then, we travel across the country, wherever the EES has been at work: from deep,dark catacombs to remote, abandoned hill-tops, their members have been uncovering the secrets of this very ancient land.
