The Treasury of Ancient Egypt
by Arthur E. P. B. Weigall
Publisher: W. Blackwood and sons 1911
Number of pages: 400
This volume contains twelve chapters written at various times and in various places each dealing with some subject drawn from the great treasury of Ancient Egypt. Sir Arthur Weigall (1880-1934) was an English Egyptologist, journalist and author. A youthful fascination with genealogy led him to the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt and so into Egyptology. At Luxor, Weigall threw himself with immense energy into aspects of the job that in his view had been somewhat neglected-the protection and conservation of monuments that were steadily vanishing into the ravenous markets of Europe and North America.

The story of Cleopatra is a story of crime. It is a narrative of the course and the consequences of unlawful love. In her strange and romantic history we see this passion portrayed with the most complete and graphic fidelity in all its influences.

The most notable quality of the Egyptian civilization is its permanent character. Instead of lasting only a few hundred years, it endures for thousands; in Egypt there appears to be no beginning, the civilization apparently starts mature.
Egyptology studies the history, practices, and conceptual categories of a culture that was prolific in terms of texts, art, architecture, and other forms of material culture. The peer-reviewed articles are written by the world's leading scholars.
