Hatshepsut, by Amelia B. Edwards

Amelia Edwards- co- founder of the Egypt Exploration Fund (now Society), female Egyptologist. The list could go on. Her grave is only a few miles from where i am right now. Deserved of a post all to herself (one for later)- it is the following link to some of her work i wish to share. This small piece of history is incredible. Made available online and is packed with a large number of talking points.

It is important to note that Amelia Edwards was writing before many of the discoveries which give us the information we have today- so there are many opportunities to compare her thoughts with the information have available today.

"Chapter 8: Queen Hatasu, and Her Expedition to the Land of Punt." by Amelia Ann Blanford Edwards (1831-1892)
Publication: Pharaohs Fellahs and Explorers. by Amelia Edwards. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1891. (First edition.) pp. 261-300."
As i stated above there are many talking points. I will higlight some of these in future posts. This document is a real gem which i am excited to have. It is made available to us by Pennsylvania University Libraries.
