Amelia Ann Blanford Edwards was an English author, notable for popular novels and travel works. She published her first poem at the age of seven, her first story at twelve. After success as a writer, she made a series of journeys, and her published accounts of these trips proved enormously popular. After her experiences in Egypt, she founded the Egypt Exploration Fund, and worked tirelessly to finance archaeological expeditions to that country and have their findings published.
