Flinders Petrie

06 Apr 2002

Who: Margaret S. Drower

What: Flinders Petrie: A Life in Archaeology

Where: The Petrie Museum, University College, London

When: 31 March 2000

Why: It mentions Charles Currelly, the founder of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. And what else should you buy at the Petrie Museum?

No picture of the Narmer palette, though it is mentioned: "Some of the finest objects -- the gold head of a sacred falcon, the copper statues of King Pepy and his son, and the palette of Narmer, the first of kings, had been kept for the Ghizeh Museum." (p.248)
