AUC Press's Description
This richly illustrated and engrossing book describes the saga of ancient Egypt’s discovery from classical times, through the Middle Ages and the Crusades, and into modern times via Napoleon’s great expedition, whose scholars and artists introduced the wonders of ancient Egyptian civilization to the world and inspired the great adventurers and archaeologists who followed.
Alberto Siliotti combines travel journals, accounts of amazing adventures, and stories of thrilling exploration with the fruits of scientific research and artistic endeavor. Ancient Egypt’s odyssey into the consciousness of the modern world is thus evoked in this magnificent book, which will awaken in the reader a sense of wonder at the marvels of this once lost civilization and the industry and daring of those who rediscovered it.
