299 groups of documentation. Texts from objects in museums, private collections and seen with dealers, and texts from sites including parts of inscriptions in tombs and temples and from in situ objects.

The notes include translation reference material, as well as accompanying notes on other aspects of the subject material, such as prosopography.

Research Notebooks

Percy Newberry's series of notebooks includes notebooks on single subjects, indexed notebooks on a range of subjects and research journals. Many of the notebooks have been numbered (in the form NB followed by a number) by Newberry and are referenced elsewhere in his research notes. As such it appears that these notebooks were used as reference books by Newberry, and they often include lists of bibliographic references for a subject.

Unfortunately it is evident that this series of notebooks is not complete and there are numbered notebooks referred to in Newberry's research material that do not appear to be in the collection.

Journals

The Journals, or more correctly journal-letters, cover 38 seasons, with a date range of 1880-1 to 1928-9, which cover Petrie’s first season in Egypt (measuring the Pyramids at Giza) through to 1928-9 (Petrie’s excavations at Tell Fara in Palestine). There are approximately 5,000 journal pages.

The earlier handwritten Journals are by Petrie, then following his marriage in 1897, much of the writing was compiled by his wife, Hilda.

Correspondence

Professional and personal correspondence, the majority of letters date between 1946-1970 and are addressed to J. Černý in London, Oxford, Prague and other European, American and Egyptian addresses and locations. The letters contain Egyptological information regarding text readings, translations, exchange of information on objects in museums or in situ, sites and texts.
