9780226391922: Excavating in Egypt: The Egypt Exploration Society, 1882-1982

A hundred year's work of the Egypt Exploration Society is celebrated in this centenary volume, written by nine leading authorities. From the pioneering days of Amelia Edwards, a founder of the Society, the essays describe the expeditions of Flinders Petrie, Naville, Griffith, Emery, and many other great archaeologists, showing how enormous and wide-ranging have been the discoveries made by the Society. Quotations form reports and diaries bring to life the arduous conditions under which the excavators labored and reveal their very different approaches. It is a triumphant story of how a few far-seeing scholars and interested amateurs combined to organize not just one grand expedition but a continuing series of meticulously planned investigations throughout Egypt and Sudan
