Extractions: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Lucie, Lady Duff-Gordon Lucie, Lady Duff-Gordon (1821–1869) was an English writer . She is best known for her Letters from Egypt and Letters from the Cape . She had TB and went to Africa for her health, living near the Cape of Good Hope for several years before moving to Egypt. In Egypt, she settled in the tiny town of Luxor where she was the only European, learned Arabic and mingled with the locals, both male and female. She seems to have been very tolerant and well-liked. Her letters home are enlivened by her humor, her outrage at the ruling Ottomans, and many personal stories gleaned from the people around her. Most of her letters are to her husband, Alexander Duff-Gordon and her mother, Mrs. Sarah Austin . Her daughter, Janet Ann Ross (née Duff Gordon), was born in 1842 and died in 1927.

That is, the fact that Africa can be easily delimited as a continent by the Suez canal does not mean that it does not consist of several cultural or even racial zones at different epochs. Especially, up until about 600 CE Northern Africa was racially as well as culturally distinct from Sub-Saharan (black) Africa. While there was a Nubian conquest of Egypt, it was fairly short lived, temporarily replaced but did not breed out the uppermost classes, and the Egyptians remained a Semitic rather than Negroid people. Remarks about "Cleopatra being black" are simply silly, since she wasn't even Egyptian, but Macedonian Greek of an inbred royal line, with a narrow, prominently bridged nose. The Tuaregs still show the strongly Europid background of the Libyans and Numidians, who absorbed the Vandals as well. This is primarily a bibliography for Sub-Saharan Africa, which had often more contact with Arabia or India than with its own northern shore. While it will include the Tuareg and the Meroitic Empire, you will have to go to other bibliographies for the earlier peoples of North Africa.
