The History of Archaeologists: The Good, the Bad and the Odd 

Without Egyptologists, we would be ignorant of the wonders that have been found in Ancient Egypt. There are those who were truly magnificent, some who were truly terrible, and a few who were truly odd. We will talk about these different people and their influence on Egypt and Egyptology and discover just how all three were important.
