Death of Ahmed at Deir el Medina book shop
My husband just told me that Ahmed, one of the two brothers that ran the Deir el Medina bookshop has died. The funeral is going on now, he had been down in Cairo having treatment, he was only in his 50s. Many Egyptologists will know this book stall well as it had the best collection of French publications in Egypt. I have bought many of my Egyptology books there. They would even let me buy on credit. I am so sad that some one I knew so well has died. I have passed on my own personal condolences and if anyone wants to leave a comment I can pass them on.
