I remember that year very well.  I was deep in pyramid books, one year before my trip to Egypt.  :-)

Yes a very bad news for tourism in Egypt !
I think that Luxor and upper Egypt was more safe that Cairo and Sinaï but apparently not.
I'm very sad for Luxor and Egypt! :-(

Guess who's having a catch-up on Pinterest this morning :-)

This is a rather elegant figurine of Isis, from the Franklin Mint House of Erte collection.

I'm not usually that taken by figurines in general, but I love Erte's designs, and I think I could make space for this on a shelf.

Photos on Facebook of Karnak - although there was an explosion, it looks like damage is minimal and there were no deaths or serious injuries, except those of the assailants.
3 terrorists, one suicide bomber blown himself up and the other two were dealt with by the police. One of them were killed and one injuries. No casually...

Who was Amelia Edwards?

Get the lowdown on one of the great names in Egyptology and found of the Egypt Exploration Fund (now the Egyptian Exploration Society).

#Egyptology  
Surprisingly few people have heard of Amelia Edwards. Archaeologists know her as the founder of the Egyptian Exploration Fund, set up in 1882, and the Department of Egyptology at University College London, created in 1892 through a bequest on her death. The first Edwards Professor, Flinders Petrie, was appointed on Amelia’s recommendation and her name is still attached to the Chair of Egyptian Archaeology.
