More Description


A pioneering Egyptologist, Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie (1853 1942) excavated over fifty sites and trained a generation of archaeologists. Now reissued in two volumes are the four excavation reports, published between 1931 and 1934, covering his extensive dig at Tell el-Ajjul in Palestine. The reports scrupulously record the finds of artefacts dating from the Copper Age and extending to the Hyksos period. Descriptions of the working party's struggles against malaria and the elements highlight Petrie's devotion to his work. Volume 1 combines the first two reports, published in 1931 and 1932. Descriptions of tombs, palaces and horse burials are accompanied by photographs and sketches of the discovered artefacts. Volume 2 combines the last two reports, published in 1933 and 1934, and notably discusses the tomb of the governor under Tutankhamun. Many of Petrie's Egyptological publications are also reissued in this series.
