Excavating archaeological sites in Egypt is of course highly rewarding work. However, a crucial element of discovery is also dissemination. Since it began working in Egypt, the Egypt Exploration Society has produced over 100 monographs, journals, site reports, and magazines documenting Egypt’s history and details of the sites uncovered.
The importance of publication cannot be underestimated. Without adequate dissemination of the remains discovered, the wider research community would be unable to learn more about the historical implications. Petrie, one of the Society’s most avid authors notes quite clearly:
“To leave important remains without any diffused record is a crime only exceeded by that of their destruction” W M F Petrie, 1901.
Some of the over 100 publications of the Society that are now all available in the Ricardo A Caminos Memorial Library.
