Agatha Christie: Archaeologist

Agatha Christie as Archaeologist
Not that we didn't know she went to Mesopotamia with Max Mallowan, but the part about cleaning the Assyrian ivories with her face cream is news to me. I also like the detail about why she was so devoted to her face cream: being 15 years older than Max, Agatha wanted to take care of her skin (out there in the dry climate) so she wouldn't look even older. Plus, I wonder about that other woman out there, the one Agatha didn't like.
