The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

The most powerful and famous of the pharaohs can still command our attention with his works at Abu Simbel or the Ramesseum. Is it deserved?

The most powerful and famous of the pharaohs can still command our attention with his works at Abu Simbel or the Ramesseum. Stories and poems told about him and perhaps even by him can be still read, and somehow he has managed to enter our imagination, so that we can recognize him in movies as the Pharaoh of the Exodus and video games as the victor of battles. Can we hope to see pass his glory and public relations to know the man? Let’s give it a try.

Gayle Gibson is a respected Canadian Egyptologist and a Departmental Associate at the Royal Ontario Museum. She worked for over 20 years as a popular teacher, lecturer and Egypt specialist at the ROM and appears frequently on television as a “guest expert.” Her main area of expertise as an Egyptologist concerns mummies and their coffins. Ms. Gibson was partially responsible for identifying Pharaoh Ramesses I, (Ramesses II’s grandfather!) among the forlorn mummies at the old Niagara museum, and giving him an assist on the road home to Egypt.

Attendees will receive a Zoom link via email the day before and on the morning of the event.
