Ibises were particularly venerated in ancient Egypt, and literally millions of ibis mummies have been found there, sometimes in ibis-shaped coffins. This beautiful example, made from wood, silver, gold leaf and rock crystal, dates from the 4th century BC (Brooklyn Museum)

The spectacular treasure was unearthed in 1939 – one of the most significant archaeological discoveries ever made in the UK! The iconic helmet is extremely rare – only four complete examples are known from Anglo-Saxon England

Watery origins of the day: 'river' and 'rival' are from the same Latin root - a rival was originally someone who competed for precious water from the same stream. Rivers run through 'derive' (draw water from) and 'arrive' (come to shore) too.
