“By Way of Accident: The True Stories Behind the Discovery of Egypt’s Greatest Monuments”

Ahmed Abul Ella

This is a good, though somewhat amateurish, book about Egyptian archaeological discoveries. I appreciated how the author — an Egyptian tour guide — told the story of how Egyptians came to “own” their own past and how, over time, more and more Egyptian archaeology has come to be conducted by Egyptians.
