We published the first part of a review of Assassin’s Creed: Origins in our last week’s blog, and the Nile Scribes have reinvited Emily Hotton to tell us about one of the more unique elements of the game, the Discovery Tour, which was unveiled by Ubisoft only a few months ago.

The Nile Scribes are pleased to host another guest blog for a mid-week special written by Dr. Peter Lacovara, who contributes a brief response to recently proposed ideas on the shabti production of the Twenty-Fifth Dynasty kings, including some on display in the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM).
When Ubisoft announced that the sequel in their Assassin’s Creed series would be based in ancient Egypt, Egyptophiles around the world heard the news with much delight, including the Nile Scribes. Assassin’s Creed: Origins was released in October 2017, and our colleague, Emily Hotton, has written a review of the game for our blog. In a second installment, she takes a closer look at a new feature only released last month: Discovery Mode, which allows the player to explore the world without any of the dangers you experience in regular gameplay.
Earlier this month, the British Museum revealed a new discovery on their blog of previously unknown tattoos on two Egyptian mummies in their collection. Following this exciting find, the Nile Scribes have asked Erin Ingram to tell our readers more about tattooing in the ancient world for our next ‘Scribal Spotlight.’
The Nile Scribes are pleased to introduce ‘In the Field,’ a new blog series in which we talk with archaeologists and specialists currently conducting fieldwork to share their sites and projects with our readers. For our inaugural post, we have asked archaeologist Amy M. Wilson to tell us about two little-known Delta sites where an Italian-Egyptian archaeological mission is currently working.
