The Early Dynastic Cemeteries of Naga-Ed-Der, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from The Early Dynastic Cemeteries of Naga-Ed-Der, Vol. 1 In 1899, Mrs. Phoebe A. Hearst entrusted to me the organisation and direction of an Egyptian Expedition. She bound herself by contract to provide all the funds for the Expedition for five years. The object of the Expedition was to make historical and archaeological researches for the University of California, and to provide material for an Egyptian Museum at that University. Later, with Mrs. Hearst's support, a great scheme of anthropological research was organized under the general direction of Professor Putnam of the University of California, and of the Peabody Museum of American Archaeology at Harvard University- and the Egyptian Expedition became part of that general scheme. I was made responsible for the Egyptian work, and was given perfect freedom in the appointment of my assistants and in the methods of work. Supported by Mrs. Hearst alone, the expedition continued its active field work for six years. After that date, working on ample funds provided by Mrs. Hearst, the expedition has continued the work of publication. The present volume is the first of a series of publications to be issued by the expedition on its excavations. A second volume by Mr. Mace is in the press, and other volumes are under way. In the spring of 1899, I engaged Mr. F. W. Green of Cambridge University to help me. He had been with Mr. J. E. Quibell at Hierakonpolis in 1897 - 8, and alone at the same site in 1898 - 9 working for Prof. Petrie's Research Account. And somewhat later, I engaged Mr. A. M. Lythgoe who had been a student with me while I was an instructor at Harvard University in 186 - 7. He had just been appointed instructor at the University, and gave up that place to come to the Hearst Expedition. With the help and advice of Dr. Ludwig Borchardt and especially of Mr. J. E. Quibell, the plan of work for the first year was formed- and I determined to look for the cemetery of Coptos (Keft) in the desert east of that place. Mr. J. E. Quibell went on a trip of inspection with me to Keft, Der-el-Ballas, Ballas, El-Kab, Kom-el-Ahmar, Matana, Esneh, Edfu and other sites in September 1899. Absolutely inexperienced as I was in camp life, Mr. Quibell and his sister, Miss Kate Quibell, were of the greatest assistance to us in the organization of a rational camp life at the start.
