Grandson of the great Australian explorer, Matthew Flinders, Petrie was an Egyptologist among whose discoveries include the cities of Zoar, Ame and Defennah. "In all he wrote over a hundred books and some nine hundred reviews and articles; he dug over fifty sites and trained a generation of archaeologists. It has been said that he found Egyptology a treasure hunt, and left it a science" (ODNB).
