Protecting Pharaoh's Treasures

My Life in Egyptology

By Wafaa El Saddik 

With Rüdiger Heimlich 

Translated by Russell Stockman

This is an incisive memoir of the first woman to become general director of Cairo's Egyptian Museum.

“I have deliberately devoted all my time to my museum education efforts. To my mind it is the only effective way to counter the threat to our ancient heritage by our own people. Only when our children take the protection of ancient sites into their own hands will we be able to save them—our children are our legacy,” writes El Saddik in the preface of her book.

Last month El Saddik received the ‘Women of Substance’ award for her exceptional achievements and exemplary contributions in her field of work.
