Flinders Petrie has been called the Father of Modern Egyptology - and indeed he is one of the pioneers of modern archeological methods. Here Margaret S. Drower, a student of Petrie's in the early 1930s, traces his life from his boyhood, when he was already a budding scholar, through his stunning career in the deserts of Egypt to his death in Jerusalem at the age of 89. Drower presents Petrie as he was: an enthusiastic eccentric, diligently plunging into the uncharted past of ancient Egypt.

Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie, commonly known as Flinders Petrie, was an English Egyptologist and a pioneer of systematic methodology in archaeology and preservation of artifacts. As a young man, Flinders Petrie himself applied such methods to the study of Stonehenge, the megalithic monument in southern England. In 1877, he published a book entitled Inductive Metrology which marked a new departure in archaeology. Three years later he was sent to Egypt to study the pyramids of Gizeh. There followed a lifetime of excavation in Egypt and Palestine.

Authoritative, comprehensive, and fully documented. Everyone concerned with the history of Egyptology and with Petrie will have to make this fine biography their starting point of reference. Margaret Drower is scrupulously honest and gives us an admirably balanced portrait of this quite remarkable man. Nature Flinders Petrie has been called the "Father of Modern Egyptology" and indeed he is one of the pioneers of modern archaeological methods. This fascinating biography of Petrie was first published to high acclaim in England in 1985. Margaret S. Drower, a student of Petrie's in the early 1930s, traces his life from his boyhood, when he was already a budding scholar, through his stunning career in the deserts of Egypt to his death in Jerusalem at the age of eighty-nine. Drower combines her first-hand knowledge with Petrie's own voluminous personal and professional diaries to forge a lively account of this influential and sometimes controversial figure. Drower presents Petrie as he was: an enthusiastic eccentric, diligently plunging into the uncharted past of ancient Egypt. She tells not only of his spectacular finds, including the tombs of the first Pharaohs, the earliest alphabetic script, a Homer manuscript, and a collection of painted portraits on mummy cases, but also of Petrie's important contributions to the science of modern archaeology, such as orderly record-keeping of the progress of a dig and the use of pottery sherds in historical dating. Petrie's careful academic methods often pitted him against such rival archaeologists as Amalineau, who boasted he had smashed the stone jars he could not carry away to be sold, and Maspero and Naville, who mangled a pyramid at El Kula they had vainly tried to break into. [An] admirable and immensely readable biography, Margaret Drower's account of [Petrie] does full justice to a complex and multi-faceted life that brimmed over with energy and event. You don't have

Outstanding life of a man who helped create scientific archeology.
A must have for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt!

Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie had no formal education but discovered amazing things. He developed a mathamatical formula for discovering the unit of measurement early people used when building ancient monuments. He found that all measurements of Stonehenge and the pyramids at Giza were incorrect because they had preconceived ideas and used the wrong units for measuring. He built most of his own instruments and his own camera. His book, Seventy Years in Archaeology, is still a standard text in archaeology. Margaret Drowers book is the result of a collection of letters, journals, papers, and over 100 books by Sir Flinders. He had adventures that rival those of Indiana Jones. Fascinating reading.

Margaret Drower's biography of Sir Flinders Petrie is a rich source of information; her research work is astounding, touching upon not only the important events of his life, but also curiosities and little known anecdotes, bringing the reader closer to the subject. When she refers to his work as an archeologist, we are taken back to the beginning of the last century, when archeology was still being systematized as a science. The pictures are also a highlight. What with Sir Flinders Petrie being considered the "father of archeology", this is a must-read for professionals and archeology lovers alike.

Before William Flinders Petrie, there were great explorers and great adventurers, some of whom even made finds of tremendous archeological note in Egypt. But Flinders Petrie was the first great archeologist. Analogous to Edward R. Murrow's preeminence to this day as the standard against which all newscasters are measured, Flinders Petrie set the standard and laid the foundations for modern archeology. Today, one can study the science of archeology and obtain a degree. One can specialize in the school of Egyptology. Major universities and museums fund archeological digs. None of this existed when Flinders Petrie first embarked for Cairo in the late 1800's with little more than a bag, homemade tools and instruments, and very little money. How he came to return to Egypt and later Palestine year after year; how the study of Archeology/Egyptology was established at University College; how the theories of dating strata by studying potsherds was developed is fascinating stuff. For anyone who has been captured by the romance of rediscovering lost civilizations, this book is a must.

Well done biography.
