Excerpt from Beni Hasan, Vol. 1
IN presenting this, the first volume of the Archeological Survey, to the public, the author desires to make the following observations.
The object of the Survey publications is to give a faithful record of the monumental remains of Egy... pt, as well as all local information about them that can be gathered on the spot. That such work is needed for even the most frequented and best known monuments is proved by the present volume. The tombs of Beni Hasan had been illustrated and described by more than a dozen distinguished Egyptologists, and it was thought, before the Archaeological Survey Expedition started, that little that was new would result. Yet the existence of three hitherto unnoticed tombs was thereby for the first time made known to science, a large quantity of unpublished scenes and inscriptions were copied, and concurrently many errors were detected in the published texts.
