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.
A basic presentation of three of these journals is available on the Griffith Institute website, see the entries for the first three journals for further information.
