"When Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Egypt in 1798, he brought more than 150 scientists and scholars along with his massive army. The scholars fanned out across Egypt, describing the country’s natural and cultural history, mapping archaeological sites from Alexandria to Aswan, and bringing places such as the Valley of the Kings to the attention of the scientific world for the first time.
