E A Wallis Budge

This November, Routledge Revivals reissue the work of Sir E. A. Wallis Budge (1857 – 1934), one of the most influential and highly acclaimed academics within the field of Ancient Egypt.

Budge was Keeper of the British Museum’s department of oriental antiquities from 1894 until his retirement in 1924 and carried out a many number of searches within Egypt.

The fifteen re-published titles on Egypt are part of the Routledge Revivals Programme. The program is designed to reissue a wealth of out-of-print and unavailable titles written by some of the leading academic scholars of the last 120 years.

Sir E. A. Wallis Budge is a highly respected authority within the field of Ancient Egypt. Not only did his career consist of being a Keeper at the British Museum, but he also carried out many projects in Egypt searching for Ancient Egyptian artefacts. The search by Budge unearthed thousands of objects which are kept by the British Museum, including papyri and statues. Budge’s lifelong research into Ancient Egypt was of great significance for academics, but was also of huge historical and cultural importance.

The Egypt series by Sir E. A. Wallis Budge covers a wide spectrum of topics within the field of Egyptology and Ancient Egypt. Covering religion, history and language, the revivals series provides invaluable reference material from one of the subject’s most important academics on all periods of Egypt’s rich history.
