    Description: Excavation directed by Flinders Petrie for the British School of Archaeology in Egypt. The museum gave financial sponsorship and in return received a share of the finds that were allowed to be exported by the Egyptian authorities. The committee of the British School of Archaeology in Egypt donated 21 objects that were accessioned on 4 April 1907, accession series 4.9.07.8-28. All but 1 of the pottery soul-houses survived the fire which destroyed the museum in 1941. The excavtions were published in Flinders Petrie, 'Gizeh and Rifeh' (London, 1907).
