  • Petrie's Excavations at Gurob, 1889-90

    Start date: 1889
    End date: 1889
    Description: Excavations for two seasons by Mr Hughes-Hughes who was working for Flinders Petrie. At this time Petrie's fieldwork was largely being sponsored by two men: Jesse Haworth (1835-1921) and Henry Martin Kennard (1833-1911). Petrie gave some of his finds to his close friend, Flaxman Spurrell (1842-1915), whose collection was given to Norwich Castle Museum which was then purchased by Liverpool Museum in 1956.
