Flinders Petrie

a.k.a. William Matthew Flinders Petrie, W.M. Flinders Petrie

Author Code: EWFP

Born: Jun. 3, 1853 - Charlton, Kent, England

Died: Jul. 28, 1942 - Jerusalem, Israel

The son of an expert surveyor, Petrie was educated by his father at home. He developed an interest in archaeology from a very early age and received tutoring in the languages that would help him in this field in the future, i.e. Latin, Greek and French. He surveyed Stonehenge and other British monuments in his teenage years. In 1880, he traveled to Egypt and performed a survey of the pyramids at Giza and on his return to England, wrote several papers on the subject which attracted the attention of author Amelia Edwards who was then a patron and founding member of the Egypt Exploration Society. She subsequently appointed Petrie professor of Egyptology at University College London in 1884 and would be his staunch supporter until her death in1892. Over the next decade, Petrie made important excavations throughout Egypt and Palestine. In 1923, he was awarded a knighthood. He eventually retired from his professorship in 1933 and permanently relocated with his wife to Jerusalem in Palestine. His works include Tanis (1885), Naukratis (1886), Tell el Hesy (1891), Egyptian Decorative Art (1895), History of Egypt (1898), Dendereh, 1898 (1900), Abydos (1902), Methods and Aims in Archaeology (1904), Religion of Ancient Egypt (1906), Egypt and Israel (1911), Neglected British History (1918), Prehistoric Egypt (1920), Ancient Gaza (1931), Seventy Years in Archaeology (1933) and Revolutions in Civilizations (1941).
