Cairo Museum collection, Georges Legrain (includes Hatshepsut) - online documentation

I have been spending a bit of time looking at the online documentation regarding the collections in the Cairo museum. Its actually a blessing for me that so much information has been digitised for study and i have been doing what i can to locate items belonging to Hatshepsut.

The following is something to share with you all. From the Internet Archive (which is proving a great resource) is the following:


Georges Legrain, 1908

"Repertoire genealogique et onomastique du Musee du Caire"

 I have included the full document, as i am aware some of you are interested in the Cairo Museum collection.

In French, i am sure (if nothing else) you will be as impressed as i am with Legrains work. This is one of a number of documents, but until i have had a chance to look at them myself- i have no idea of the content.

I read some of this on the way home and am pleased to note all the obvious names- Hatshepsut, Neferure, etc.

Read online as a PDF or save for a rainy day
