The results ot the excavations made for the Egypt Exploration Fund
are now published so promptly that there is less occasion than formerly
to illustrate them by plates in the Archaeological Report. Mr. Eeisner's
admirable photographs here published touch on a point of great im-
portance, connected with Professor Petrie's explorations among the pre-
historic remains, and as the results of the Californian expedition are not
likely to be published for some time, these illustrations are particularly
valuable.

The Editor desires to thank numerous contributors, who have come
forward with information to fill the gaps that have shown themselves in
previous reports. The information regarding the official work in Egypt is
chiefly supplied by Mr. Quibell, and may therefore be relied upon. ' One
lias to read between the lines to have any idea of the extreme difficulties
met with by M. Maspero and his staff in their efforts to stop illicit
plundering and to preserve the monuments. When these difficulties,
political, financial, legal, and administrative are recognized, it will be felt
that the measure of success which M. Maspero has gained is a matter for
congratulation.
