I’m not British. But I agree, their humour can be slightly dry at times…

Re: Interested in egyptology ???

I would love to hear from anyone who has read, or who will soon be reading "The Secret of the Great Pyramid". Perhaps start a new discussion ?

Now that I have read the book, I wish that I could re-visit the Great Pyramid and spend some more time deep inside it. There are so many details that I just didn't know about during my visit. Most especially, I'd spend more time examining the "robbers tunnel".

After you have read it, I'd love to discuss it with you.

Bakerman - Amazon have just delivered my book - had a quick look at the many interesting photos/diagrams/maps etc., Now that it is a little cooler I am going to open a bottle of Claret - curl up on the sofa with the cats - and enjoy a good read!

Our humour is self-deprecating, sometimes cruel but by and large we don't take ourselves too seriously, which could appear strange to non-British.

Re: Interested in egyptology ???

I really am enjoying it, Bakerman - about half way now. Normally I would have finished it by now - but - this infernal heatwave is stultifying my concentration - so - progressing little and often! The author has such a lovely simple way of writing - everything is completely explained and understandable - it is a joy to read. Had not realised there were quite so many pyramids out there - see - I am learning already!!

Re: Interested in egyptology ???

I've just watched a TV program about Egyptian archaeology which I came across purely by chance and it brought back memories from 1962, when I walked up one of those internal passages in the Great pyramid. I wonder if they still let visitors do that? I'll look out for that book Bakerman.
At least I got to ride a camel!
