Survey Department. Cecil Mallaby Firth (1878–1931) British Egyptologist. Firth was a lawyer who after working in Cyprus for a brief period left to join the Service des Antiquités in Egypt, an organisation run by French scholars to prevent the illicit trade in Egyptian artifacts. Firth worked on the first archaeological survey of Nubia of 1907 to 1911. In 1912 he set up the Aswan Museum. George Andrew Reisner (1867–1942) American archaeologist of Ancient Egypt, Nubia and Palestine. In Egypt, Reisner developed a new archaeological technique which became a standard in the profession, combining the British methods of Petrie, the German methods of Dorpfeld and Koldewey, his own American practicality and his skill for large-scale organization. Despite later being recognised as a mark of good practice, this technique was at the time controversial, and was criticised as being overly elaborate. Additional postage may be necessary US$1073
