The Horrible Histories series goes down well in this household (there's one called Villainous Victorians but I can't remember the Egyptians title). Obviously, it's not to be taken over-seriously, but my DC have retained a remarkable number of factoids from those books.

Elizabeth Phillips' Amelia Peabody series - victorian archeologists in egypt - fiction with humor/romance/suspense.

'The Egyptian Chronicles' by Gill Harvey is an excellent series - a sort of Roman mysteries but for slightly younger readers. The first book is 'The Spitting Cobra'.

"History Spies" by Jo Foster.

Highly recommended.

There are some Usbourne lift the flap type books on these subjects - DS1 has a few in the series. Bought on internet more cheaply than shop.
