Sorry, I'm a bit slow getting back to this list.
The original request is what I quoted below. In later messages it
sounded like she was interested in persona type details or for sources
of info for a possible A&S project in the future. Considering the
opposition she stirred up in her kingdom to pre-medieval cultures and
cultures outside of Europe, I wish her the best of luck. I have also
offered a place in the Florilegium if she writes an acceptable paper.
I have passed a number of the messages that gave info on this list on
to her and the Atlantia list. And I am in the process of creating an
Egypt-msg file for the Florilegium with the information given on the
Atlantia and this list. So any bibliography or book recommendations
that might not be of interest to her, might still find a home in the
I don't intend to carry info going back to the Great Egyptian Empires,
but Roman and early medieval Egypt would be of interest.
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?

Just had to pass on something I saw on the Atlantia list today.

<<< I have recently been curious about Egyptian culture (mostly as
it would've related to the time of the Romans and earlier) but
really in any way it could relate to SCA timeline. I am having
trouble finding any resources for people who would like to create a
persona or finding someone who has an Egyptian persona. Ive tried
some online searching but to no avail. Anyone know of someone I can
chat with about the subject? >>>
