Founded in 1882, the Egypt Exploration Fund (now Society) promoted many early archaeological investigations of that country's Pharaonic sites. This commemorative volume charts the excavations of Flinders Petrie and other pioneers. Illustrated with 200 archival images, including watercolours by Howard Carter and other archaeologists, it recreates the working conditions on these digs, describes the state of the sites at the dawn of modern archaeology, and sets their discoveries in archaeological and cultural context. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
