WE regret to record the death on February 22 at the age of fifty-two years of Thomas Eric Peet, reader in Egyptology in the University of Oxford. Eric Peet was educated at Merchant Taylors' School, of which in later life he became a governor, and at Queen's College, Oxford, where he was Jodrell scholar and graduated with second class honours in Classical Moderations and Literce Humaniores. In 1906 he was awarded a Craven fellowship and entered the British School of Archaeology in Rome, later holding the Pelham studentship. The results of his researches were published in 1909 in “The Stone and Bronze Ages in Italy and Sicily”, a book which is still recognised as a standard authority.
