Exhibition: Excavating Egypt going to Santa Fe

Dallas Morning News
More than 220 Egyptian artifacts from a collection that never before has left England will be on display at the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe from Sept. 1 through Jan. 6. "Excavating Egypt: Great Discoveries from the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, University College" traces the development of Egyptian archaeology from its beginnings in the 1880s to the present. The collection originated with Sir William Flinders Petrie, an explorer and archaeological pioneer who developed the first scientific excavation techniques.
