Abstract

Kennedy examines the maps and sketches officers and soldiers produced of the Egyptian coast near Alexandria during the British expedition of 1801 to analyse how these soldiers saw and represented the peoples and landscapes they encountered on campaign and the ways in which personal and professional identities and experiences informed these representations. British pictorial representations of this expedition have received little attention in comparison to the extensive visual record left by the French occupation of 1798–1801, and this chapter reconsiders the assumed connection between topographical representation and colonial appropriation in light of this under-exploited visual evidence.
