Rawi is a privately published, semi-annual bilingual (English/Arabic) magazine on Egyptian history and heritage based in Cairo. Our beautifully photographed articles, contributed by experts in every field aim to ignite our readers’ passion for history, archaeology, architecture, art, and more.

The Rawi is the Egyptian storyteller, the raconteur, earning a living from the nation’s oral history. As the Rawi began to tell a story, people would gather around to listen. If it weren’t for the storyteller, many legends would have been forgotten.
