    Author: Snape, Steven Ralph
    Publisher: University of Liverpool PhD Thesis
    Date: 1986
    Description: Publication of excavations at Abydos between the years 1906 and 1909 by Professor John Garstang of the Institute of Archaeology at Liverpool. These excavations were never published in anything like a complete or adequate form, and the objects unearthed by Garstang have, since their recovery, been widely scattered. The major part of this thesis is an attempt to reconstruct, as closely as was then possible, the work of 1906-1909.
