Anyone who knows anything about the contributions of William Matthew Flinders Petrie to the world of Egyptology and archaeology will enjoy the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology at the University College, London. I certainly did. Here are some photos I took of various works that struck my fancy during my visits.
Linen tunics from a tomb at Deshasheh
Group of squat jars with lug handles with painted decorations.
Stela of Khety, from Abydos (detail)
Blue Amarna ware.
Lots and lots of pots discovered by Petrie.
Predynastic pots (yes, that the picture I picked for my site banner).
Group of painted plaster heads once part of coffins.
The interior of an exhibition case.
Very cute Roman pot with smiling face.
