About Me

Welcome to Jane Akshar’s page

You can find out all about me on this site whether you are interested in my website work, my books, a holiday at my apartments in Egypt, my family tree or you are just nosy.

I first got interested in Egyptology when I was 9, thanks to my lovely grandmother and it has been a thread through my life ever since. My first visit to Egypt was in 1979 and I moved to Luxor in 2003. Tourism is very quiet in Luxor so I went back to my original career, IT development and I developed UK quality websites at Egyptian rates!

In 2018 I retired and returned to the UK, to Barry in Wales now living with John
