Abstract:

Flinders Petrie's pioneering excavation technique - to examine soil inch by inch instead of heaving shovelfuls of dirt around a site - elevated archaeology from an activity for tomb raiders and treasure hunters to a true science. He conducted the first mathematical analysis of the architecture of the pyramids, discovered the oldest portraits in the world, and unearthed ancient Egypt's prehistoric roots. In this program, Chris Naunton, director of the Egypt Exploration Society, travels to the key sites of Petrie's discoveries and draws on his extensive correspondence, work journals, and photos to chart the man's remarkable achievements.
