  • Similar journals for other seasons of work in Egypt must have existed, but their current location is not known.


  • Cultural warning: Users of this material are warned that some records document observations of people and cultures using scientific research models and language from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in ways that may be considered offensive today.


  • The journals have been transcribed and prepared for publication on this website by a number of volunteers and the Griffith Institute Team (see individual journals for details). Jenni Navratil has digitized them all.
