Amelia Peabody’s Egypt

Written by Elizabeth Peters (ed.) Kristen Whitbread (ed.)
Review by Vicki Kondelik

This beautifully-illustrated companion to Peters’ popular Amelia Peabody series includes essays by various contributors on subjects such as the history of Egyptology, the British in Egypt, and Victorian attitudes towards women, servants, and people of other cultures. There are also guides to characters (both human and non-human), places mentioned in the books, and foreign words and phrases. A must for fans of the series, and highly recommended for anyone interested in Egypt, archaeology, or the Victorian era.
