My Weekly Latest Issue August 2

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneWe pride ourselves on bringing you a wide variety of features in My Weekly, and in this issue I feel we have excelled, if I do say so myself. 100 years ago this week archaeologists made a spectacular discovery, which would help reshape our view of the ancient world – the tomb of Tutankhamun. It’s a fascinating tale. full of drama and intrigue, which has been brought to life by our writer Claire Saul (p36). It’s so good, in fact, it has thoroughly tempted me to hop on a flight to Egypt to see it first-hand! I hope you enjoy reading about it. Have a great week.
