The man whose Ancient Egyptian sarcophagus was buried in a mausoleum with the longest echo in Europe.

The hero whose mistress thought he should be made Viscount Pyramid and Baron Crocodile.

The architect who paid as much for a single Egyptian antiquity as the British Museum did for a whole collection.

The pioneer Egyptologist who had to flee England to avoid scandal, and could only return on Sundays.

The painter who added extra slaves to a picture when its buyer complained that there weren’t enough to haul the giant stone lion in it.
