Okasha El Daly

Dr Okasha El Daly was born in Egypt in the Memphis area (the first capital city of Egypt ) and in his youth was intrigued by the monuments he saw in his home town. He went on to study for a BA in Egyptology at Cairo University before becoming an inspector of antiquities and a guide for guests to ancient Egyptian monuments. He married a Scottish lady and moved to England where he completed a PhD in UCL, London. Lecturing since 1992 at UCL, Dr Okasha has been focussing on bridging the gap between Egyptologists and Arabists. His work has taken him in search of manuscripts to many places including Ireland, Turkey, France and India as well as colleagues who have helped him in other countries.
