E a Wallis Budge

Dr. Budge of the British Museum was one of the foremost Egyptologists of the early 20th century. Through his numerous trips to Egypt and the Sudan he gained firsthand knowledge of cuneiform, building the British Museums enviable collection of tablets, manuscripts, and papyri. He published many works on Egyptology, bringing knowledge of the ancient Near East to an ever-widening audience.
