Currently I am in love with (but hasn't written for) Amelia Peabody stories by Elizabeth Peters.
As well as, of course, the Mummy which I have stories up and about
my Amelia site is: /ameliapemerson
My Mummy site (combination of myself and Eviefan) is: /oconnellsegypt
PLEASE visit them, they are really worth it... well, oconnelsegypt is. :)
and for those of you who don't know who Amelia Peabody is, she is a Victorian-age archeologist (in Egypt, of course) who always gets tied up in muders and mysteries.
