About Anthony

Antony Sattin is an award-winning author, journalist, and broadcaster and undoubtedly the UK's leading Egyptophile. A prolific writer, he also reviews books for the Sunday Times, sits on the editorial board of Geographical Magazine and provides pieces on Arabic culture to BBC radio. He is the author of many titles including The Pharaohs' Shadow: Travels in Ancient and Modern Egypt, The Gates of Africa and A Winter on the Nile. He has escorted countless travellers up the Nile (where he says, 'history is constantly on your shoulder') sitting with guests over a drink and entertaining them with talk of the duality of Seth and Osiris, or how both Florence Nightingale and Flaubert discovered themselves over the course of a winter on the river.
