Philosophical Transactions is the world’s first and longest-running scientific journal. Established in 1665 by the Royal Society, it was central to the dissemination of cutting-edge research during this significant period. As well as scientific discourse, the journal also played an important part in the promotion of antiquarian research, such as the documentation of these ancient Egyptian monuments.
