Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

[T]he veil which has hidden the beginnings of Egyptian civilization from us has been lifted, and we see things, more or less, as they actually were, unobscured by the traditions of a later day. Until the last few years nothing of the real beginning of history in either Egypt or Mesopotamia had been found... Nor was it seriously supposed that any relics of prehistoric Egypt or Mesopotamia ever would be found. -from "Chapter I: The Discovery of Prehistoric Egypt" A very exciting time for historians, the beginning of the 20th century saw dramatic new discoveries that greatly expanded our understanding of the ancient world...and opened up new ranges of questions to be answered and mysteries to be solved. In 1910, two members of the Department of Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities at the British Museum published this journal of the latest news from the realm of Egyptology, a breathless, almost ecstatic, but always scholarly rundown of the most recent findings uncovered in the deserts of yore, from startling archaeological revelations about the Neolithic peoples of Egypt to the unearthing of hitherto unknown dynastic tombs. A fascinating document of the history of the study of history, this beautiful book, replete with 100 plates and illustrations, will delight amateur Egyptologists and armchair archaeologists alike. Among many other works of classical history, H. R. HALL also wrote Babylonian and Assyrian Sculpture in the British Museum (1928), and L. W. KING, A History of Sumer and Akkad (1910).
