Legends copied by Černý from Album of Photographs of Egyptian Objects in the Museums of Bologna, Florence and Turin

Notebook containing legends copied by Jaroslav Černý on 19-21 July 1954 from album of photographs taken by W.M. Flinders Petrie of Egyptian objects in the Museums of Bologna, Florence and Turin in April 1893.

Note: Although these legends correspond with the album Petrie MSS 3.1 'Photographs of Egyptian Objects in the Museums of Bologna, Florence and Turin', they are not included in it. It is not known whether the photographs were rehoused or if there is a duplicate album with legends seen by Černý held elsewhere.

Album 2 - Deshasheh

-Album titled 'Deshasheh 1897' containing photographs from Petrie's excavations at Deshasheh in 1897.
-The introduction on the third page reads: 'Deshaheh is a village on the western edge of the Nile Valley, about twenty miles south of the entrance to the Fayum. At about two miles back in the desert is a low range of cliffs about 80 ft high. The southernmost end of these cliffs is an isolated hill which contains the inscribed tomb of Anta and many unnamed tomb pits; the cliffs for half a mile north of this are pierced with many more tombs, and contain another inscribed tomb, of Shedu. A serdab of a great mastaba, now destroyed, contained the series of statues of Nenkheftka. While in the hill above was the tomb and coffin inscribed of his son Nenkheftek. The excavations were made in Feb. and March 1897 for the Egypt Exploration Fund. / W.M. Flinders Petrie. / The whole cemetery is of about the Vth dynasty 3600 BC.'
-The final 2 pages of photographs in the album (Petrie MSS 5.2.77-85) are of a statuette now in London, Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, 14210.

  • Petrie is at Amarna for the whole season mainly excavating in the Great Palace where he uncovered a painted pavement decorated with scenes of animals, birds and vegetation. Subsequently, much of the season was devoted to recording the pavement, as well as sealing it with a tapioca-based solution in order to protect the surface. Petrie was assisted by Howard Carter who was in Egypt for the first time. Petrie's opinion of the 17-year-old fledgling archaeologist is recorded in this journal: "Mr. Carter is a good-natured lad, whose interest is entirely in painting & natural history; he only takes this digging as being on the spot & convenient to Mr Amherst [Carter's sponser], & it is of no use for me to work him up as an excavator."
  • Sites: Amarna (el-Amarna).
  • Includes several small watercolours of objects.
