The Pharaoh Island: 90 years after the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, how Britain has embraced Egyptian architecture

'Egypt in England' by Chris Elliott examines over 50 Egyptian sites in Britain, revealing the curious stories behind these unusual and often outlandish pieces of architecture and interior design.

For centuries the wonder of Ancient Egypt remained largely inaccessible to European travellers, until its 'rediscovery' in the 19th century.

Published by English Heritage to coincide with the discovery of Tutankhamen's Tomb, 'Egypt in England' provides a look at these and other forgotten paragons of Egyptian-style that span our nation.
