Early in the year with the January Revolution very much in mind I visited the Book of the Dead exhibition at the British Museum. It inspired me to write an article about how the Egyptians might have seen the break in at the Egyptian Museum and how the recognition of the risk may have helped spur people to protect Tutankhamun's tomb in the Valley of the Kings. It was very tabloid peice but I didn't manage to place it anywhere. It doesn't really fit well either here or on Egyptological because it isn't an academic piece at all, so I have finally published it on Wizzley. If you are interested, it is called The Magic of King Tutankhamun.
