Brackway, who, as Oxford University Research Student, ‘vas carrying on what have proved to be most valuable anthropological investigations among the Fellakin. Lhad also residing with me five of my pupils, lads of from fifteen to eighteen yours of age, whom I was prepaving for the University, together with their tntor, Me, Eowanp Laverna of St. John’s College, Oxford. ‘The last-named, since he has become editor of Discovery, has devoted a great deal of space in that admirable periodical to articles on archaeological and anthropological research-work in Egypt. ‘That T was able to record this large tomb in the space of time at my disposal, I owe alinost entirely to my sister, who, on the top of her own arduous work, undertook entire esponsibility for the domestic well-being of this by no means small establishment, keeping fhe accounts, managing the servants, and most efficiently controlling the commissarint, — ‘not a light task in a desert-camp several miles away from the nesrest village! Tpastioularly wish to tender my thanks to my old pupil, Mx. D. J. V. Fonsmen, now of Pembroke College, Oxford, who devoted a great desl of his time to assisting me in all of ways. His are the photographs 2 3, and 4, on Pl. XXIIL, and he is also ble for a Iarge part of the drawings reproduced on Pls, XVILL—XX. To another old Yr, Grorruy Cuanmens, now of Woreester College, I am indebted for all the plans find sections on Pls. Land IL, to Mr. J. Martiy-Hanver of Christ Church for the sketches reproduced on Pl. XXVI, to Mr. Ronan Futusn of Merton College for undertaking the general index on pp. 5760, and to Mr. Grurrrrmm and Mr. Barrrscomms GUNN for several valuable suggestions. Tasily L must express my sincere thanks to Professor Sermp of Gottingen University: for the asistance he has given me, not only in the elucidation of the two biographical inseriptions (ceo pp. 28 foll.), but also in the rendering of many of the little explanatory inscriptions aitachod to the various figures, or groups of figures, in the senlptured and painted scones, The extent of this assistance is, I hope, made fully clear in the following pages. T shonld add that by a most regretable oversight I omitted to record in the preface to ‘Meir, ii, my grateful thanks to Mrs. QuiBeLt for so kindly making for me, while on a visit in my camp in the Spring of 1918, the coloured facsimile of the interesting piece of wall- Aecoration in tomb-chapel B, No. 4, reproduced on Pl.
