From the incredible discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922, to the monumental pyramids at Giza, our appetite for ancient Egypt and the men and women who ruled its mighty empire shows no sign of abating. This month, with the help of Professor Joyce Tyldesley, we examine the dynasties that ruled Egypt for more than 3,000 years, and explore the power of the pharaohs. We also meet Egypt’s ‘female kings’, share some lesser-known facts about Tutankhamun, and discover how pharaohs prepared for life after death. Turn to page 28 to get started. Staying with a royal theme, to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, we’ve pulled together an A–Z of her life and reign – from her work with the Auxiliary Territorial Service during World War II, to the numerous royal tours she has conducted over the past 70 years. Find out more on page 57.
Elsewhere, we look at eight examples of women’s fight for equality – from the right to enjoy a quiet pint, to continuing paid work after marriage (page 64), and question whether England’s republic might have survived had Oliver Cromwell’s son not become Lord Protector after his father’s death (page 70).
Also this month, we investigate the dramatic event that saw Shakespeare’s beloved Globe theatre go up in flames in 1613 (page 16) and analyse a work of art from Depression-era America that has become one of the most parodied paintings of all time (page 62). Plus, we examine a 17th-century rebellion that could have ousted King James II and VII from the throne (page 21).
See you next month!
