Crocodile on the Sandbank - Inspiration for the Mummy? Showing 1-24 of 24
Amelia Peabody series
Thank you so much for this blog post! I love the Amelis Peabody series and thanks to your suggestion I'm beginning to read them again. I love your points about historically accurate behavior in fiction. I trained as a medievalist in college and grad school and it used to drive me nuts when people would look at historically accurate characters in fiction and become irate that these characters were not behaving in modern way. I had a friend who stated with no reservation that if she had been beaten in order to get her to marry the man her parents wanted her to and not the man she loved as a character was in a movie we were watching, that she would leave their house. She would runaway and make her own way in the world.

Jul 28, PM. Anyone else there watch the movie the Mummy and think that the Amelia Peabody books were an inspiration? Jan 25, AM. Yes I thought that to while reading Crocodile on the Sandbank. This is the first book I've read in this series, and plan on reading more.
The Amelia Peabody series is a series of twenty historical mystery novels and one non-fiction companion volume written by Egyptologist Barbara Mertz under the pen name Elizabeth Peters.

If you're like me, you've read every novel in Elizabeth Peters' beyond-delightful Amelia Peabody mystery series about eight times over. Egyptologist Barbara Mertz who wrote under the name Elizabeth Peters was kind enough to give us nineteen and a bit Amelia adventures before heading off to kibbutz with Osiris and company herself. Not all of these are Victorian. None involve archaeology. This is largely because they aren't the further adventures of Amelia, Emerson, Ramses and Nefret.
Countless people have been introduced to Egyptological fieldwork through the writings of Elizabeth Peters in her volume Amelia Peabody Egyptology mystery series. Following Peabody, her husband Radcliffe Emerson, and their entourage around Egypt is dramatic, full of mystery, danger, fabulous finds, and, of course, romance. Figure 1. Current cover of Crocodile on the Sandbank, originally published in The Peabody-Emersons have a cult following; their fans are legion and devout. In fact, they are such earnest devotees that I hope I do not insult anyone by referring to Amelia Peabody in the past tense. I assure you: I do so for a purpose.
