About Me

Back when the world was young and dinosaurs roamed the earth a desperate grandmother thrust Christiane Desroches Noblecourt's book on Tutankhamen in front of a bored 9 year old. Thus my love affair with Egypt and Egyptology began.
Since then although I have pursued a career outside Egyptology http://www.linkedin.com/in/janeakshar it has remained my love. Evening classes, summer schools and lots of books have kept the flame burning.

When I married my husband Mahmoud and moved to Egypt I thought I was retiring but actually I was starting two new careers, one providing services to tourists the other as a writer and Egyptologist. So you will see me everywhere Sunday Times, Boston Globe, Daily Telegraph, A Place in the Sun. Monarch In-Flight magazine, Easy Jet destination guide, TV and radio. Add to that I am studying Egyptology with Manchester University.
