We’ve covered a range of stories on the blog over the last 12 months. From Ancient Egyptian cat mummies, to new apps, to landmark discoveries by our curators and tons in between.

This year we introduced new series that offered readers a closer look behind the scenes. Brian Boyle showed us what goes on inside the ROM’s photography studio and Robert Mason’s "Weapon Wednesday" are a few of the favourites. 

The top five most read ROM blogs of 2013 are:

1. Mesopotamia: The First Reviews Are In

In June, at the opening of Mesopotamia, the print media was buzzing with critical acclaim for the exhibition.  Don’t miss it; Mesopotamia: Inventing Our World closes January 5, 2014.

2. DNA Reveals Possible Presence of Sasquatch in Northern Ontario

4. The Cat’s Tomb

Turns out the Internet loves both cats and Ancient Egypt.
