Cover of issue 1, published in 2010

Rawi is an annual privately published, bilingual (English/Arabic) periodical 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.

Issues one through five each feature a wide variety of articles covering the diverse aspects of Egypt’s history and heritage. Starting from issue seven (2015), we began to follow a thematic approach where we pick a topic every year and produce an encyclopedic volume about it.

The Rawi is the Egyptian storyteller, the raconteur, earning a living from the country’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.
