Sir william flinders petrie and sequence dating

He was born in Charlton, Kent, in England on June 3, 1853.

He suffered from ill health as a child and his mother, a scholar herself, tutored him until he was a teen-ager, when another bout of illness ended his formal education.

At age 22 he published his first book, “Ancient Measurements from Monuments,” based on his surveys of Stonehenge, according to the Parsons article.Many archaeologists consider Flinders Petrie’s crowning achievement to be the discovery of an Egyptian civilization that existed before the time of the First Dynasty of pharaohs.This era is now called the Predynastic Period, which Flinders Petrie found in and around the site of Naqada, located about 20 miles north of Luxor on the Nile’s west bank.In fact, he sent back so many specimens that his collection is housed today in its own museum in London as well as in The British Museum.In addition to collecting what others found worthless, Flinders Petrie developed a system for cataloging finds that became known as sequence dating.
