More About Archaeology of Race by Debbie Challis
 
 
 
Overview
'The Archaeology of Race' looks at how racial and social theory was practically applied by British historians and archaeologists to interpret the past during the late 19th century, particularly through the use of material culture from ancient Egypt and Greece. It specifically focuses on the ideas of Francis Galton and the role of the Egyptologist Flinders Petrie in applying these (and sometimes disagreeing with them) in his work in Egypt, drawing specifically on archives and objects from the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology and the Galton collection at UCL.
