Recherches sur les Origines ae l'Égypte, L'Âge de la pierre et les Metaux

    Article metrics


    THE excavations which have been carried on in Egypt during the last twenty years have had as their object the acquisition of antiquities rather than the scientific investigation of the numerous problems anent the early Egyptians and their predecessors, which still, unfortunately, remain unsolved. It cannot be denied that public interest in the work depended largely upon the value of the facts which could be deduced from the study of Egyptian antiquities in their relation to the history of the sojourning of the children of Israel in Egypt, and it is only quite lately that attempts have been made to treat the various branches of Egyptology from a comparative point of view. Moreover, a mistaken idea had gone abroad about the ability of the Egyptologist to settle the difficulties which constantly cropped up, and the philologist was thought to be able to give a final answer to every question which was propounded to him.
