About the Author:

Margaret S. Drower (Mrs. C. Hackforth-Jones) has retired as a lecturer in ancient history at University College, London, where she was a reader in ancient history; she is now an honorary research fellow in the Departments of History and Egyptology. A Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, she has contributed to many books and BBC programs on the ancient Middle East.

From Library Journal:

Written by an Egyptologist, this meticulously documented biography records the life and work of the legendary British Egyptologist (1853-1942) whose exemplary scientific fieldwork provided the foundation for modern Egyptology. Drower draws upon a wide range of sources to trace Petrie from his childhood in England through a long, magnificent career that set new standards in recording finds, establishing principles of dating pottery, treatment of workers, and standards of ethics in archaeology. A man of robust health and enormous energy, he had the great good fortune of marrying the perfect partner in Hilda Urlin, his indefatigable coworker. Excerpts from letters and diaries allow charming insights into Petrie's notoriously spartan life on the site. Long-awaited and definitive, this belongs in every biography collection. Joan W. Gartland, Detroit P.L.
