Henry Salt: Artist, Traveller, Diplomat, Egyptologist
Henry Salt was one of the most important figures in early 19th century travel, archaeology and diplomacy. Celebrated for his expeditions to Abyssinia, Salt later became British Consul-General in Egypt, where he played an important diplomatic role. However, it is for his involvement in the re-discovery of ancient Egypt that he is best remembered. This study is an appreciation of this significant figure and brings to life a fascinating period in the history of Egypt and Abyssinia.
