Notebooks

The majority of the notebooks are A5 or similar. Most of the content is handwritten unless specified otherwise.
Many of the notebooks contain transcriptions of hieratic texts from ostraca, papyri and other objects. Also recorded are transcriptions of graffiti (hieratic and hieroglyphic) and hieroglyphic texts from monuments.
Texts were often copied in situ at sites or in museums and were continually collated. Transcriptions were also made using photographs and publications as source material.
Some notebooks are thematic focusing on economic and social history issues. These subjects include Egyptian administration (nomes), prices, topography (e.g. Deir el-Medîna), etc.
Notebooks compiled from material consulted in Egyptian collections, mostly in European countries and Egypt. Černý visited museums with major collections of hieratic material from Deir el-Medîna, most notably, Museo Egizio, Turin; British Museum, London; [Ägyptisches] Museum, Berlin; and Rijksmuseum, Leiden.
Černý compiled a series of slip-indexes for the transcriptions (slip-indexes, see Černý MSS 23 to 46).

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.

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.
