European Egyptologists Jean-Fran ois Champollion and Howard Carter are famed, but what of the Americans George Reisner, James Henry Breasted and Herbert Winlock? The American Discovery of Ancient Egypt by Nancy Thomas, a curator at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, retrieves them from near-obscurity in essays by Gerry D. Scott III and Bruce G. Trigger and 227 illustrations (70 in color) of objects excavated by Americans and displayed in the extensive collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and other U.S. museums.
