Second day off of a week's "vacation" from the day job, to finish The Lady and the Libertine. Wanted to concentrate all my efforts on the book and write this week. I'm close, very close.
Right now I'm reading about the Temple of Alexander the Great in the Bahariya Oasis, where the hero and heroine go before they raid the treasure tomb. The temple is mainly ruins, and it's the only known temple dedicated to Alex in Egypt.
The Valley of the Golden Mummies is very close. I'm loosely, very loosely, basing the secret tomb in The Lady and the Libertine on that tomb site. The Valley wasn't discovered until much later than the time period of this book.
I love researching Egypt. Always something new to uncover.
