Title: Egypt’s Ramses III


Ambition, intrigue, political assassination, a refugee crisis—the action-packed Ramses III issue of DIG has it all. Ramses is thought of as Egypt’s last truly great pharaoh, and he ascended to the throne at a time of great turmoil. He weathered invasion, the world’s first recorded worker’s strike, and an influx of foreigners, but couldn’t survive a murder plot at the hands of the women in his own harem! Visit the pharaoh’s magnificent temple and examine his mummy. Don’t miss the Tale of the Doomed Prince, a short story that has survived since Ramses’ day—except for the ending. This month’s shocking and mysterious articles include:
