A Directory of projects relating to the history of archaeology.
Run by Dr Sarah Ketchley, this project is transcribing the diaries of Emma B. Andrews, an American woman who travelled frequently to Egypt in the early 20th century. Andrews was closely associated and romantically linked to American industrialist Theodore M. Davis, who obtained permission from the Egyptian Government to excavate tombs in the Valley of the Kings, Luxor.
The project is also transcribing and making available online the diaries of other Americans travelling to and working in archaeology in Egypt at this time.
