Amelia Edwards, founder of the Egypt Exploration Fund (later Society), will shortly be honoured with an English Heritage blue plaque at her former London home. The plaque will be unveiled on Thursday 19 March 2015*, and we would like to offer two Society members the opportunity to attend the event and a lunch afterwards.
