It's shaping up to be a good autumn for Egyptology fans with a new Egypt gallery opening at Manchester Museum and a fascinating photography exhibition at Quadriga Gallery, at Wellington Arch, exploring the taste for Egyptology in British archtecture.

The latter has been organised under the auspices of English Heritage, who have produced a fascinating new book called Egypt in England. And we have a copy to give away.

To grab yourself this first detailed guide to the use of Egyptian style in architecture and interiors in England, simply answer the following question:

What was the name of the Italian explorer and adventurer who brought many Egyptian artefacts to Britain in the Georgian period - including the great bust of Rameses II, now resident at the British Museum?

Email your answer, with Egypt in the subject line, not forgetting to include your name and address, to
