Geschiedenis van het archief

Given to the Society of Antiquaries under the condition that the Keeper of the Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities at the British Museum, and the Society of Antiquaries were able to extract and retain relevant information for their respective archives. Any residue would then be passed on to the Corporation of Brighton. In the event all three bodies waived their claim on these papers which were then subsequently offered to the Griffith Institute.
