Published in celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the founding of the Egypt Exploration Fund (now Society) in 1882, this volume gives a fully illustrated account of the earliest years (1883-1915) of the Society's work in Egypt. It describes the conditions of ancient sites at the beginning of scientific archaeology in Egypt, life in excavations run by pioneers such as Flinders Petrie, and sets major discoveries in their archaeological and cultural contexts. The book contains 200 archival images, many of which have never before been published, and includes watercolours by artists such as Howard Carter who started his archaeological career on EEF Archaeological Survey expeditions.
