Readers of the first of these Reports, issued last year, will
observe that one section of the work of the Egypt Exploration
Fund is almost uni'epresented in the present issue. The
Archaeological Survey, of which I have the honour to be
Superintendent, has not received such support as to justify the
sending out of an expensive expedition every year : our efforts
during the past twelve months have been confined to working off
the arrears of publication. The quantity of material collected
m the three seasons' work from 1890 to 1893 was very great.
For Beni Hasan we have issued two closely-packed volumes :
one of these was noticed in the last Report, the other was dis-
tributed to subscribers in December, 1893, and completes the
survey of that famous group. For El Bersheh we shall likewise
have two volumes, which are now in an advanced state. When
these have been issued, the public will be in possession of a full
account of the two most important groups of tombs that exist
of the Middle Kingdom. We shall then probably turn our
attention to the monuments of the Vlth Dynasty in the same
district, for which also we have ample materials.
