Sights and stories: a walking tour with the EES

Yesterday, the 1st of April, was the 133rd anniversary of the foundation of the Egypt Exploration Society in 1882, named at the time the Egypt Exploration Fund (EEF), by Amelia Edwards and Reginald Stuart Poole.

 

Amelia Edwards has recently also enjoyed more public interest with the unveiling of an English Heritage Blue Plaque at her childhood home in London. To celebrate this event, her work and that of other notable figures in Egyptology in the 18th and 19th centuries, the EES put on a walking tour of Camden and Clerkenwell on Saturday 21st March.
