tions, contending that the temple, &c., were essentially Egyptian, not
Semitic. Man, 1905, No. 54. Petrie describes his results, publishing
the photograph of a model of the temple, of flint tools and granite picks,
and replies to Mr. Thompson's criticisms (ib. 64), to which Thompson in
turn rejoins, upholding his own view (ib. No. 73).
The Oases. Prof. Steixdoeffs volume, Durch die Libysche Waste
zur Amonsoase, besides describing his journey, is a very valuable mono-
graph on the geography and history of the oases of Siwah and Bahriyeh,
richly illustrated by photographs. A bibliography and map are appended.
The Egyptological material, however, still awaits publication.
