"Scarabs and Cylinders With Names" by William Matthew Flinders Petrie

We are fortunate enough to have a number of quality (if dated) books which have been scanned, so that we may see them today. Many books and articles are available to us and its a joy hunting them down.

The following book, by Flinders Petrie, "Scarabs and Cylinders With Names", is one such book we can all see without the expense of a purchase. Available to download from ETANA it offers an insight into the scarabs and cylinders throughout Egypt's history.

There is a specific division into Dynasties, and is set out chronologically. Hatshepsut ("Hotshepsut") has a number of items included, which i will use for my research.

A very good insight into scarabs and cylinders. Enjoy.
