The Flinders Petrie Perspective

300 objects from Petrie excavations are housed in the Allard Pierson Museum Collection. Flinders Petrie (1853-1942) is known as the man who discovered Egypt and invented a dating system for pottery identification used many years before Carbon14 dating was discovered. He was involved in many excavations in Egypt between 1880 and 1920.
