Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Griffith Institute is an institution based in the Ashmolean Museum of the University of Oxford for the advancement of Egyptology as a discipline. The Griffith Institute is named after the eminent Egyptologist Francis Llewellyn Griffith, who bequeathed funds within his will for the foundation of the Institute. The Institute opened on 21 January 1939, with its own independent committee of management. The Institute houses an important and unique Egyptological archive, preserving early copies of inscriptions, drawings and watercolours, old negatives and photographs, squeezes and rubbings. Among some seventy major groups of material the Institute holds the papers of Sir Alan H. Gardiner, Battiscombe Gunn and Jaroslav ern, records made by Howard Carter during his discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, as well as the documentation from the Nubian expeditions of Griffith and Sir Henry Wellcomeshow more
