Good reads: Alfred J. Butler and the history of Egypt

Taking a day off, or most of one, and hitting up a museum or two. I may have something later today. As always, thanks for reading.

If you’re in search of something to read this morning, Michael Collins Dunn has put together a series on Alfred J. Butler (d. 1936), a British Orientalist who pioneered the study of Coptic and Arab conquest-era Egypt. Often the study of the study of the Middle East can be as interesting as the actual study of the Middle East.
