Flinders Petrie began his long association with ancient Egypt and the Near East when he went to Giza to survey the pyramids in 1880. Until his death in 1942, he dug almost continuously. During his long career Petrie revolutionised Egyptian archaeology but this book is not about his scientific work or finds, which are published elsewhere.
