The Ancient Allan is a book by H. Rider Haggard, first published in 1920. It is the twenty-first book in the Allan Quatermain series. Though this book does feature Quatermain, most of the plot concerns one of his past lives. In the frame story, he and Lady Ragnall (introduced in The Ivory Child) take taduki, a drug that induces visions of previous incarnations. Quartermain then relives the experiences of ancient Egyptian aristocrat Shabaka (a descendant of the pharaoh of the same name), alongside flashes of his earlier lives. Ragnall experiences the past life of Amada, an ancient priestess of Isis. Several recurring characters of the Quartermain novels also appear under various guises.
