Ever since the modern age discovered ancient Egypt we’ve been hopelessly enthralled by it. And why wouldn’t we  be? It covered 3,000 years of amazing constructions, mummifications, untold wealth, fascinating gods and all-powerful pharaohs. For this issue we’ve chosen to focus on the pharaoh Ramesses II, who is frequently described as one of Egypt’s greats. Ruling for over six decades, this god among men had a profound effect on his civilisation. Turn to page 48 to find out about his power.  As ever, this issue gleefully jumps across some of history’s most interesting time periods and events, such as the American gold rush, Japan’s Kamikaze warriors, Italian unification and the hunt for Jack the Ripper. This issue sees the launch of our first-ever reader survey and we would really appreciate your input. As we know filling in surveys can be a minor hassle, everyone who gives us their feedback will be entered into a draw where they can win history-related prizes worth around £300 ($500). Entry details are on page 27 and we would love to hear your opinion on the magazine.
