A Directory of Archives useful for history of Archaeology Research.
This archive was housed in a sealed room in the site of Abydos, in Egypt, and discovered in 2013. Records relate to the Egyptian Antiquities Service between the 1840s and the 1960s, a critical period for archaeology in Egypt. Importantly, this archive reflects to the work of Egyptian inspectors and guards in the Egyptian Antiquities Service during this period. The project is currently conserving and cataloguing the archive, and preparing a searchable database of the collection.
