The scandalous rape of Ancient Egypt is a historical vignette of greed, vanity, and dedicated archaeological research. It is a tale vividly told by renowned archaeology author, Brian Fagan, with characters that include the ancient historian Herodotus; Theban tomb robbers; obelisk-stealing Romans; Coptic Christians determined to erase the heretical past; mummy traders; leisured antiquarians; major European museums; Giovanni Belzoni, a circus strongman who removed more antiquities than Napoleon's armies; shrewd consuls and ruthless pashas; and archaeologists such Sir Flinders Petrie who changed the course of Egyptology.This is the first thoroughly revised edition of The Rape of the Nile - Fagan's classic account of the cavalcade of archaeologists, thieves, and sightseers who have flocked to the Nile Valley since ancient times. Featured in this edition are new accounts of stunning recent discoveries, including the Royal Tombs of Tanis, the Valley of Golden Mummies at Bahariya, the Tomb of the Sons of Ramses, and the sunken city of Alexandria (whose lighthouse was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World). Fagan concludes with a clear-eyed assessment of the impact of modern mass tourism on archaeological sites and artifacts.
Reviews:
  • Centrizius
Fun to read an overall history of Egyptology, and the accounts of early excavators such as the colorful Giovanni Belzoni make for great reading. Start here and explore the unfolding story that is still going on, as the existing artifacts are threatened still by spasms of religious upheaval and intolerance towards antiquity.
  • Najinn

  • Bluddefender

High quality and a great purchase!!!!
  • Small Black
I would say this is an excellent book for Egyptology lovers; especially beginner, who would like to have an overview of where , who & how the treasures have been robbed all through the years. Readers can have a thorough understanding on how the European museums acquired all these artefacts, the logistics & the historical incidents involved.

The book is easy to read & is able to keep your interest from beginning to the end. The footnotes is especially useful if you would like to go into more detail reading.
  • Ventelone
I absolutely love it with every fiber of my being.
  • Iseared
I read this in about a weeks time. The tone was a bit confusing in the beginning because I wasn't​ sure if the author was taking a third party narrative or not. Nevertheless, this was a very informative book and a great read.
Excellence.
