Forged Egyptian Antiquities


Regular price $100.00 Sale

In the days when it was possible to take home ancient Egyptian antiquities as souvenirs, many Europeans later found that they had paid extravagant amounts for forgeries. Wakeling's text provides an overview of common fakes and the methods used to create them. Filled with anecdotes and illustrations, the expert explains how to tell a real find from a forgery, lapis lazuli from glass, and a mummy from a murder victim.
