The English Egyptologist Arthur Weigall (1880-1934) was closely involved with many of the spectacular discoveries of the early 20th century and, as Chief Inspector of Antiquities for Upper Egypt, he tried passionately to thwart the export of Egypt's heritage and to conserve what was left of it. This biography describes in detail Weigall's involvement in Egyptian archaeology, but also explores his varied careers - in set design, film-making and journalism - after he left Egypt in 1914.
