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.

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.

Petrie Journal 1893 to 1894 (Koptos)

  • Journal letters.
  • November 27, 1893, through to February 23, 1894.
  • Handwritten.
  • Petrie is at Koptos for the whole season where he was assisted by James Edward Quibell and Bernard Pyne Grenfell. Petrie discovered three temples and found evidence of constant occupation at the site, from the Predynastic period through to the Roman era. Petrie also discovered three Predynastic colossal statues of Min beneath a Ptolemaic pavement, one statue is now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, and the other two are in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Petrie's excavations at this site initiated the formation of the highly-regarded Egyptian workforce specialising in archaeological excavation and referred to as "Quftis".
  • Site: Koptos (Coptos; Qift; Quft).
