The show's United States tour began in April 2005 at Emory University's Michael C. Carlos Museum in Atlanta, Georgia and continues through June 2009. The objects are explained in 12 richly illustrated chapters that deal with various aspects of ancient Egyptian art and material culture: chronology; sculpture; archaeology; sites; weights and measures; daily life; writing; arts and crafts; ceramics; funerary works; tools and weapons; and faience and glass objects. First and foremost, Excavating Egypt... is the story of the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, founded through bequest in 1892 by writer Amelia Edwards (1831-1892) at University College London.

Edwards' numerous trips to the land of the pharaohs were described in her popular A Thousand Miles Up the Nile (1877); the book introduced British readers to Egypt, its people and ancient monuments.
