Khufu, can you hear me?!

Mentuhotep III, Rameses XI, Qa'a, Jean Michel Jarre, Seamus Heaney, Nadine Coyle, Martin McGuinness... your boys took one hell of a beating, etc, etc.

The Horniman Museum has won the public vote to secure the next work by installation artists rAndom, collecting 1,615 vote in an online poll. The collective strength of South East London's hyperlocal communities overwhelmed the supporters of rival prospective hosts: UCL's Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, the Royal Victoria Docks and Void Derry.

As a result, we'll be getting "an installation with music and storytelling inspired by the museum garden spaces and natural history collections." Well done Team South East. If anyone has any other suggestions for votes we can rig, please let us know.

This site lacks the facility to 'like' a post. I like this post and would like to 'like' it.

And Nick, surely your headline writing has entered its imperial phase.
