If it's food, I'd say get a copy of Dalby's Food in the Ancient World from A 
to Z.  A quick perusal showed me a number of entries that would be of value 
in putting together a picture of Egyptian food from Pharonic to Ptolemaic.


> What exactly is wanted? Food history? Persona? General History?
> Egypt during the Classical Roman era?
> Egypt during the European Middle Ages?
> During the Crusades? (Fifth Crusade?) What time period?
> There's no problem finding books on Egypt. Have they asked at a library?
