Recommended Reading: Archaeology

Theodosia spends much of her time in the Museum of Legends and Antiquities removing curses from ancient Egyptian artifacts as fast as her archaeologist mother sends them from the Egyptian dig. In this first of a series, Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos by R.L. Fafevers, Theodosia must dodge a sinister group while trying to save the British Empire from a particularly devastating curse.

Want to know more about Egypt and its famous mummies? Ancient Egyptians: People of the Pyramids by Rosalie Baker will tell you all about early Egyptian religious beliefs including why the Egyptians mummified their dead. In addition, this book includes information about all aspects of Egyptian life including language, military, ordinary families and the Pharaohs who ruled the land.
