A pioneering Egyptologist, Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie (1853?1942) excavated over fifty sites and trained a generation of archaeologists. This excavation report, first published in 1900, documents and illustrates the findings made at the cemetery of Dendera, until then neglected by archaeologists in favour of the more famous temple site. The work includes descriptions of the tombs and a chapter by Francis Llewellyn Griffith (1862?1934) on the inscriptions. Also covered are the pottery, funereal furniture and animal catacombs. The discoveries date from the Old Kingdom right through to the Roman period. The extensive section of plates includes plans of the tombs along with drawings and photographs of the many artefacts found within. Petrie wrote prolifically throughout his long career, believing that insights gained from his digs should be shared as swiftly as possible. A great many of his other publications - for both specialists and non-specialists - are also reissued in this series.Table of ContentsIntroduction1. Tombs of the Old Kingdom2.
