This book addresses some of the main themes of the study of Egypt during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In a combination of case studies and discursive chapters, the status of Egypt as an important example of traditional Asian scholarship, and as an ancient model of imperialism itself, is examined. Contributions range from studies of nineteenth century antiquarianism, and the collecting of Egyptian antiquities as an extension of the territorial ambitions and rivalries of the European powers, to explorations of how Egypt is understood and interpreted in contemporary societies. Views of Ancient Egypt also considers the way in which Ancient Egypt has been adopted by less privileged members of some societies as a cultural icon of past greatness.

From 1798, when Napoleon's invading army rediscovered the ancient civilization of Egypt, until 1922, when the contents of Tutankhamun's tomb were handed over to the Cairo Museum, the European powers fell over themselves to plunder the archaeological treasures of the Nile valley. So-called archaeologists behaved like tomb robbers, government officials engaged in illegal conspiracies, and crates of priceless and often unrecorded treasures were shipped away all over the world. But at the same time the science of Egyptology was born. The story is peopled with flamboyant antiquarians, corrupt officials and eccentric geniuses - men like Champollion, who could speak seven oriental languages by the age of 18, and who deciphered the Rosetta Stone, key to Egypt's mysteries.

Despite the fact that we have a range of senses with which to perceive the world around us, museums and other cultural institutions have traditionally used sight as the main way to convey information. In everyday life, though, we use touch constantly in conjunction with sight. Why, then, does it play so small a role in the study and enjoyment of museum objects? Contributors to this volume explore how the sense of touch can be utilized in cultural institutions to facilitate understanding and learning.
