Egypt and the Near East have enchanted many people over the centuries. Travellers from the West have journeyed to this region for a variety of motives: in pursuit of knowledge, power, diplomacy and trade, for pleasure and adventure, on pilgrimage, and to plunder and discover the exotic - or sometimes simply to discover themselves. Some have been influenced more than others by what they saw- bringing back tangible evidence of their visits, in the form of antiquities or other collectors items- others have used their observations and experiences for their own literary and artistic ends.
