Here is one more famous traveller to Egypt…
Miss Jane Marple is another fictional character from the prolific pen of Britain’s most famous (and most read) crime novelist, Agatha Christie. Living in a small, quiet English village Miss Marple is an ‘amateur consulting detective’.
Often characterized as an elderly spinster, she is one of Christie’s most beloved characters and has been portrayed in numerous films and television series.

It would appear that Miss Marple is also a ‘lady of independent means’ and has travelled widely both around the British Isles and on the Continent and so, having read about the recent discovery of Tutankhamun’s Tomb decides the time is right both for a change of scenery and the opportunity to delve deeper into the many mysteries surrounding Ancient Egypt, Tutankhamun and a number of unexplained deaths surrounding the tomb’s discovery.

This figure portrays her shortly after arriving in Cairo and waiting for her transport and a local guide to take her to ‘The Valley of the Kings’.
