Abstract

Between 1975 and 1981 Professor Fekri Hassan worked in the Western Desert and Naqada Region of Egypt, investigating numerous sites. During these projects he collected some of the most important study collections relating to the Egyptian Palaeolithic, Epipalaeolithic and Predynastic periods. The authors describe how this material arrived in UCL stores, the process of repatriating it back to Egypt and the Institute of Archaeology’s collections policy.
