Originally published between 1913 and 1914 for the Egypt Exploration Fund, these three excavation reports relating to the necropolis at Abydos are now reissued together in one volume. Following the important work carried out by Flinders Petrie - his two reports on The Royal Tombs (1900?1) and the three-part Abydos (1902?4) are also reissued in this series - �douard Naville (1844?1926) began further excavation and recording of the site's cemeteries with Thomas Eric Peet (1882?1934) and others. Each report contains a section of valuable illustrative material, such as photographs and drawings of the discovered artefacts. Part 1, covering the 1909?10 season, includes chapters on pottery and mummified dogs. Part 2, written up by Peet, covers all the tomb work carried out between 1909 and 1912. Part 3, co-authored with W. L. S. Loat, covers the 1912?13 season, notably the discovery of an ibis cemetery.Table of ContentsPart I: List of platesPreface1.
