This month's post is on trowelblazers.com, where I've written a piece about archaeologist Marie-Louise Berges Garstang! I didn't have much to go on - her husband John Garstang is much more well known - but thankfully historical newspapers helped illuminate her activities a bit. Do check it out! Read "Marie Garstang - Meroe to Mersin in the Middle of it All" here.

Tuesday 3 June 1930, 2.30 p. m. London’s Hippodrome Theatre. Lady Newnes (aka Emmeline de Rutzen) hosts a “Historical Egyptian Matinee” to raise funds for the British School of Egyptian archaeology's excavations in Palestine and the Friends of the Poor. Mrs Julia Chatterton, a well-known folk song collector, composes all the music for the occasion, to be played on Egyptian instruments. The audience enters to the strains of Verdi’s Aida – first presented in 1871 at the Khedival Opera House in Cairo.
Once everyone is seated, a gong tolls. The familiarity of Verdi gives way to something entirely different, and much more authentic. Julia Chatterton wants the music to take the audience away from themselves, away from London, away from the 20th century. They are to learn and appreciate, the programme notes tell them, “the Oriental mode of musical expressions.”
Julia Cook-Watson Chatterton was no dilettante. She was a member of the Society of Women Musicians before World War 1, she had moved to Egypt at some point before 1914 to edit the illustrated newspaper The Sphinx, and spent ten years living in Egypt with her husband, architect Frederick Chatterton, who was employed in the Egyptian Public Works Department. While there, she began researching Egyptian songs and instruments alongside making her name and garnering official recognition for her work entertaining the troops based in Cairo via the “Cards Concert Party” during the war. Her wartime medals were sold at Bonhams in 2013.
When she eventually returned to England in the 1920s, she began composing pieces with Egyptian themes, using instruments she had collected in Egypt, and presenting them in London. The 1930 issue of Egypt and the Sudan features Chatterton’s article on “The Music of Egypt” in which she attempts to educate English tourists about the history and musicality of Egyptian songs and instruments.
I first came across references to Julia Chatterton’s work on the Hippodrome event some years ago; it’s been on my list of topics to blog about ever since. In preparing for a talk at the Museo Egizio in Turin, I’ve revisited my initial research. Thanks to Petrie Museum curator Anna Garnett and former curator Alice Stevenson, I’ve now been able to see some of the fantastic ephemera created for this event in the Museum's archive.
The enormous event poster prominently promotes Chatterton’s “Original Egyptian Music”, and lists some of the Egyptian instruments to be featured – pipes, sistrum, lyre, nay, harp, oud (lute), darraboukeh.
In the programme, a full picture of the musical programme for the afternoon emerges. Fourteen individual musical interludes, with additional “incidents” occurred during the event. Italian-born London-based composer Francesco Ticciati conducted the orchestra. Noted music historian, archaeologist and British Museum curator Kathleen Schlesinger loaned instruments from her personal collection. Vocalists included one soprano, three mezzo sopranos, two tenors and four baritones (one of whom was Petrie student Gerald Lankester Harding). Among the instrumentalists were a lute player, a tamboura player, a harpist and a pianist. Mamoun Abd el Salam was responsible for playing the nay, the argul and the rebab. Julia Chatterton herself was also one of the musicians playing the darraboukeh, an instrument with which she was particularly skilled, and the kithara.
Complementing the music was a series of fourteen tableaux showing ancient Egyptian history between 8000 and 30 B. C. The performance had 81 cast-members, and “one white pigeon” (representing a dove). It began with a scene of earliest Egypt, accompanied by “Rhythmic Hand Clapping”, showing the Badarian civilisation, the remains of which had recently been excavated by Petrie students Guy Brunton and Winifred Newberry Brunton (also a noted artist). The story of King Khufu and "The Pyramid Age” of the 4th Dynasty was commemorated in Terence Grey’s short play The Building of the Pyramid.
Princess "Sat-hat-hor-ant" (Sithathoriunet), whose elaborate jewellery had been the highlight of Petrie’s 1913-14 season at Lahun, was also featured in the tableaux. The jewellery worn during the performance was recreated from published plates by Lady Leeds (Eltheleen Winnaretta Singer), who took the part of Nefert in the Pyramid Age Tableaux, using cardboard, beads, wax and macaroni. The action wound up in Roman Egypt, with appearances from Marc Antony, Julius Caesar and Cleopatra (played by Lady Newnes herself).
The matinee attracted an audience of 1400 people, among them Princess Beatrice, Queen Victoria’s youngest daughter. Lotus-badge wearing volunteers handed out further information on the British School of Egyptian archaeology’s research, schemes and publications to interested audience members - it was a fundraising venture, after all.
It seems to have been quite the Society event, and there are so many elements to explore in this one action packed aural and visual extravaganza it’s impossible to cover in one blog post, or in one lecture. Needless to say I’ll be returning to this topic in due course, and perhaps someone with a connection to the event will have even more information! (Pretty please?)

A very short post this month to draw your attention to my latest article. 'Filming A Biblical City' was published at the beginning of this month in History Today's recently launched online platform 'Miscellanies'. The article explores the history behind the creation of Lachish - City of Judah, a film made in the 1930s to document the Wellcome Marston Archaeological Expedition to the Near East's excavation of Tell Duweir. Hope you enjoy it!

In 1930, archaeologist Harry Reginald Holland Hall published a book on his wartime journey to Mesopotamia on behalf of the British Museum in 1918-19. Its lengthy descriptive title - A Season’s Work at Ur, Al-Ubaid, Abu Shahrain (Eridu) and Elsewhere: Being an Unofficial Account of the British Museum Archaeological Mission to Babylonia, 1919 - masks what an interesting read it is.
Hall was sent out to Mesopotamia as a military intelligence officer, “British Museum” unit, but on arrival he was converted to political service. (I imagined, on reading his memories of this incident, something akin to a scene in Marguerite Vance’s Marie Antoinette in which the young Austrian Archduchess Maria Antonia changes from Austrian to French clothes to become the Dauphine Marie Antoinette.)
He’d packed up his trowel in a kit bag, to paraphrase that popular WW1 song, and gone to “Mespot” to check on its antiquities and conduct some preliminary excavations, in preparation for what he called a “new regime” of British administered archaeology in the region.
He describes his rather complicated and quite fascinating journey to “Mespot”, involving several stops and changes en route, in great detail with characterful flair in the first chapter of his book. It begins at Waterloo Station, where he boarded a troop-train headed for the coast. On arrival at the northern French port of Cherbourg, he boarded another train, travelling through France and Italy, celebrating Armistice Day en route at Lyon. He caught a boat from Taranto, Italy to Port Said, and then went overland to Cairo to have an archaeological confab with fellow excavators David George Hogarth (in charge of the Arab Bureau intelligence network), Leonard Woolley (fresh from a prison camp), and James Edward Quibell (Curator of the Egyptian Museum).
From Egypt he caught the British India Steamship Navigation Co’s Chakdarra, stopping in Bombay. Major-General Sir Walter Cayley, commanding the 13th (Western) Division in Mesopotamia, was also on board, and he asked Hall to deliver a series of archaeological lectures to the troops on board. This request is fascinating, as it indicates the provision of educational opportunities for soldiers serving on the Mesopotamian front during wartime, and an attempt satisfy troops' interest in the archaeological landscapes they were moving through.
“…for the first time I realised how deeply many of the officers serving in Mesopotamia had, in spite of the military miseries of the country, been bitten by the interest of its antiquities…”
This juxtaposition of military manoeuvring and an archaeological landscape is highlighted in a contemporary publication on the war from the Amalgamated Press. An overview of the war’s theatres and main protagonists, The War Illustrated Album de Luxe highlighted stories of wartime triumph and tragedy alongside every-day activities. The Mesopotamian front was included in several volumes, with images of soldiers on the ground and the emerging British administration featured alongside the archaeology surrounding them. (Two such examples are “Ancient Ruins and Modern Doings in Mesopotamia” and “From the Ruins of Babylon to Modern Baghdad”.)
There is a 21st century equivalent to this history too. After the looting of the Baghdad museum in 2003 archaeologists created a bespoke set of ‘heritage’ playing cards to educate US soldiers serving in Iraq about antiquities and archaeological sites. Pictures of some of these cards were published in Public Archaeology journal in 2007.
The 100th anniversary of World War 1 is still continuing, and with it associated digital history and exhibition projects. Although there is no equivalent for Mesopotamia that I know of (but do check out Paul Cooper's recent Twitter thread on his great-grandfather's archive), you can discover how WW1 soldiers captured their own experiences in Egypt and Palestine through the Views of an Antique Land project. I’ve also written a post on the Palestine Exploration Fund blog about a fascinating series of post-war letters from WW1 soldiers who had served in Palestine. You can read “To the Secretary, Palestine Exploration Fund” here.

Constantinople (now Istanbul) was a key city for late 19th and early 20th century British archaeologists. The city and surrounds was, and continues to be, a major tourist destination too. In the late 19th century John Murray issued a guidebook specifically for Constantinople and environs – Brusa and the Troad in northwestern Anatolia, Turkey. (The Troad is the area where from the 1870s Heinrich Schliemann with his wife Sophia Engastromenos and the workers they employed had been busily occupied in digging for the remains of ancient Troy at Hisarlik just south of the Dardanelles, a watery highway separating “Turkey in Europe” from “Turkey in Asia”.)
I recently found a 1907 copy of Murray’s Handbook to Constantinople, Brusa and the Troad in an Oxfam bookshop. I couldn’t resist buying it, as guidebooks like this are usually pretty expensive, and this one was relatively reasonable. I was already excited about it as I took it home, only to discover on having a closer look at it that there was something even more exciting tucked away inside.
By the early 20th century Murray’s Handbooks were designed with an envelope opening in the cover, a thin “pocket” between the red cloth covering and the paper endpapers. It’s easy to miss if you don’t know it’s there. The pocket usually holds a separate fold out map – in this case a detailed plan of Constantinople. This pocket, however, to my delight also contained a postcard and a tram ticket.
The delicate paper ticket is not in great condition; it was crumpled near the edge of the bottom of the pocket and is now in two pieces. But enough of it remains to show that on one side is a map of the tramways and on the other ticket particulars: tariffs, carriage classes and sections. The text is in French and Turkish.
The Handbook frames Constantinople as a city divided between “Europe” and “Asia”: Stambul (the Byzantine city) and Pera Gelata (a merchant quarter where European ambassadors lived) in Europe and Skutari in Asia (now Anatolia, Turkey). Its population of well over 800,000 represented, as Murray’s put it “nearly every nation of the globe”. The tramway ticket is a potent physical reminder of Constantinople’s modernity – the Societe des Tramways de Constantinople opened the tramway in 1871.
Just after this copy of the handbook was published the Young Turk revolution began initiating a period of upheaval in Ottoman Turkey. The archaeologist William Mitchell Ramsay, his wife Agnes Dick Ramsay and one of their daughters (who is not named) contextualised and recorded this period from a British point of view for a British readership in The Revolution in Constantinople and Turkey (1909). The Ramsays’ “diary” begins in Germany in April 1909. On hearing that the Young Turks are marching on Constantinople, “Miss Ramsay” hopes she and her parents will “go straight on and be there when the fighting begins”. And they do.
Like many bits of ephemera, the tram ticket’s delicacy almost guarantees that it won’t survive long beyond the use for which it was created. I’m very glad though that in this case, the previous owner of Constantinople, Brusa and the Troad hung onto the ticket long enough to forget about it.

Polls. They’ve been in the news rather a lot of late. Not a day goes by on Twitter without a poll of some kind or another. Recently, History Hit has been asking people to name the most influential historical figure. For one academic historian’s perspective on the matter read Steven Gray’s excellent and thoughtful blogpost.
Now, anyone who knows anything about history knows that humans are repetitive over time. So it should come as no surprise, dear readers, that this kind of influential historical figure poll has been done before. In 1888, to be precise.
I’ve been preparing a conference paper, and browsing as I do regularly on the British Newspaper Archive a short article in the Sheffield Evening Telegraph from December 1888 happened to catch my eye.
It was a rather outraged opinion piece taking issue with suggestions being made in the Pall Mall Gazette for the most influential women in history. The author of said piece was completely scandalised that the Virgin Mary had been neglected in favour of other far less ‘influential’ (and far more sinful) ladies – like Pope’s daughter, Renaissance lady and rumoured poisoner-extraordinaire Lucrezia Borgia. Wow, I thought, I must check this out.
The Pall Mall Gazette articles that inspired this outrage were even more interesting. It all started when “A Lady Who Wants To Know” wrote a fairly lengthy piece asking “Who Were The World’s Greatest Women?” comprising her own thoughts on the problems of such a question (how do you assess “greatness”?) and her list of twelve women, divided into two categories: Ladies of Thought and Action.
The Pall Mall Gazette went further than publishing this one ‘think piece’ and solicited responses to the question (and lists of Great Women) from eminent women of the day, including women’s rights campaigner Millicent Garrett Fawcett, author and dress reformer Constance Lloyd Wilde, author Olive Schreiner and an anonymous “Lady Journalist”. Their responses were then ranked by order of popularity.
Joan of Arc, you’ll be interested to know, came out on top - nine women featured her on their lists. Also in the top five were authors George Sand and George Eliot, Elizabeth I and Empress of the Hapsburg Empire/Marie Antoinette’s mum Maria Theresa. The responses ranged across a diversity of women’s experience – authors (Sand, Eliot, Austen), saints (Catherine of Siena, Elisabeth of Hungary), campaigners (Annie Besant, Elizabeth Fry), rulers (Cleopatra, Boudicca), Biblical heroines (Judith, Esther). Mrs Fawcett included “Aliah Bae” on her list (I had to look her up – she was an 18th century Indian ruler).
Each respondent followed the initial author’s example and sent in twelve names, though they disregarded her categories. Combined, the names of over 50 women were featured. I loved particularly the novelist Lucy Clifford’s comment, sent along with her list of ladies, that “A few of them lacked virtue, but none of them lacked greatness.”
There’s a lot more to investigate about this historical competition – what it says about which historical women were generally known and revered among British (female) intelligentsia and why for a start. But that’s for something more substantial than a blog post!*

This month's post is on the Filming Antiquity blog, where I've put together footage of urban spaces captured in the Harding films. These sequences show Amman, Jerash, Jerusalem and Gaza as they were in the 1930s when Gerald Lankester Harding encountered them. Accompanying the footage are some further details on the 1930s context of the films, and some wonderful images from the Horsfield and Harding archives at the Institute of Archaeology. You can read "Filming the City" here.
Also recently added to the Filming Antiquity blog is a fantastic guest post from Caitlin O'Grady, Lecturer in Conservation at the Institute of Archaeology. Caitlin takes us through footage showing conservation practice (much of it done by women) in the 1930s and 1950s, using sequences from three separate films, all digitised through the Filming Antiquity project. Read Caitlin's blog "Sticking, Mending and Restoring: the conservator's role in archaeology" here.

Like many other people I suspect, I’ve been watching American Gods. I’m not familiar with the Neil Gaiman book on which the series is based, but I’m intrigued by the plot's mixture of different cultures’ mythologies.
I grew up reading D’Aulaires Book of Greek Myths (first published in 1961), so much so that the family paperback copy literally fell to pieces. Last year I bought a new copy - flicking through the pages was like visiting old friends.
Having now spent years researching the history of archaeology, I’m familiar with some but by no means all of the ancient Egyptian pantheon. But my current focus on popular archaeology publishing has revealed a few books that were published in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to make the British reading public more familiar with ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses and the stories associated with them.
One of the early 20th century authors I’ve come across is James Baikie. This Scottish vicar wrote fairly regularly for the publishers Adam & Charles Black on various topics both archaeological and scientific (he was a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society). His Wonder Tales of the Ancient World is a retelling in English of ancient Egyptian stories and legends recorded in papyri. It appeared in time for the Christmas in December 1915, priced at six shillings, and was marketed as the ideal gift for children.
Baikie's aim in writing Wonder Tales was to animate Egypt for his readers. Otherwise, he declared, Egypt would be “mainly interesting for old stones and old bones.” His first chapter set out the source of the stories for readers; he explained the system of writing in hieroglyphic and hieratic, and the use of papyrus reed rolls, which thousands of years after they were created were recovered by archaeologists and looters.
He drew on the works of archaeologists for the text, referencing among others Flinders Petrie’s popular Egyptian Tales books, which Methuen had published in chronological volumes in the 1890s. Egyptian Tales featured illustrations by the artist Tristram Ellis, who had spent time in Egypt gathering material to inform his work.
Wonder Tales is divided into three parts: Tales of the Wizards, Tales of Travel and Adventure and Legends of the Gods. Each part begins with a short explanation giving a bit of context to the stories that follow. The introductory text to the Legends of the Gods section offers an explanation for the complexity of the ancient Egyptian pantheon. Following that are five legends, featuring a host of gods and goddesses: Ra, Nut, Hathor, Thoth, Isis, Horus, Khonsu. Some of the stories are linked back to archaeologists – after “How Isis Stole the Great Name of Ra”, for example, Baikie includes an anecdote from Flinders Petrie’s Sinai expedition.
There are twelve coloured illustrations in Wonder Tales – the work of Baikie’s wife Constance N. Baikie (nee Turner Smith). They are rather splendid - I wish there were more of them. I’d love to find out more about Constance Baikie as an artist but she is proving to be fairly elusive in the historical record (so far). However, as she provided the illustrations for many of James Baikie’s books she had quite a prolific output.
It would be great to see these Egyptian gods and goddesses more often in popular culture today.* Perhaps a revamp of Baikie’s Wonder Tales would be in order. Any takers?

In autumn 1923 Hurst and Blackett published Ethel Stefana Stevens (Drower)’s By Tigris and Euphrates. I came across the book while researching post-WW1 guidebooks to Iraq; it was listed as recommended reading in Cook’s guide to Palestine and Syria (which in the 1920s also included a section on Iraq) and extensively quoted in the text relating to Baghdad. As I’d written a previous post on Stevens as a pre-war travel writer with an eye for archaeology, naturally my interest was piqued, and I wanted to have a look at the book. So, off I went to the British Library.
Stevens met her husband Edwin Drower in Sudan, but in 1919 they were living in Iraq – first in Basra and then in Baghdad, where they remained for twenty years. By Tigris and Euphrates is dedicated to Drower, “the best of comrades, with whom many happy hours and good times in ‘Iraq have been shared”.
Stevens charts her experiences in and observations of Iraq and Iraqis early on in the period in which Britain occupied and then administrated Iraq under a League of Nations Mandate – an occupation, it must be said, that she benefited from.* By Tigris and Euphrates offers an illuminating if imperial glimpse into this period; among the subjects she highlights is the increase in British tourism to the country. Stevens also reveals the nature of English expat society in Iraq, particularly for women – her chapter “The Englishwoman in ‘Iraq – Her House and Her Husband” is devoted entirely to their experience.
Stevens’ two chapters on archaeology form Part II of the work, taking readers on a highlights tour to “Some Buried Cities of Assyria” (including Nineveh, Nimrud and Asshur) and “Some Buried Cities of Babylonia” (including Babylon, Akerhuf and Ur). At Ur, Stevens explains, the Iraq railways had arranged for a twenty minute stop at Ur junction for passengers to eat a meal and gaze at “great ziggurat” visible from the station.
At the time of her visit to Ur in 1922, Leonard Woolley was just beginning his excavations at the site on behalf of the University of Pennsylvania and the British Museum. Stevens credits him for providing her with information on the discoveries made in the first season, and acts as excavation champion in the text of the Ur section by flagging up a lack of funds hampering the continuation of work.
While on site she went up to the top of the ziggurat in order to look down on the excavations. Seeing the site deconstructed (as it were) gave her a perspective on how the site must have looked to the community of builders who originally constructed it. She also examined some of the expedition's finds, carefully arranged on shelves in a “little room” awaiting conservation (a process she describes in some detail).
Stevens was writing at a time before the Museum in Baghdad was formally instigated. Gertrude Bell was acting as Honorary Director of Antiquities, but there was no building for accommodating and displaying collections. Bell’s letters, now text searchable thanks to Newcastle University, show that “Mrs Drower” helped Bell arrange a small exhibition of finds from Ur (those to be left in Iraq after the division, more specifically) in March 1923, constituting the start of a publicly accessible Museum. At the private view Bell arranged, Woolley and Bell conducted the notable visitors (including King Faisal and his ministers) round the display.
A new documentary film, Letters from Baghdad, offers another perspective of this immediate post-war period in Iraq. A visual smorgasbord of archive footage, Letters explores Gertrude Bell’s life and her work in archaeology and politics, complete with recreated interviews with key figures in Bell’s life – including several archaeologists. It’ll be in UK cinemas from 21 April, so get you to the movies!

Over the past year we at Filming Antiquity have been working with filmmaker Rob Eagle at UCL on a film about the project. It's been a great to be a part of the process of making a new film of the footage we've digitised, and seeing how sequences from Gerald Lankester Harding's archive films and the new interviews Rob did with me and my Filming Antiquity colleague Michael McCluskey came together in the final product. Rob's film is now available online to view here, with edited highlights (and closed captioning) here. Hope you enjoy it!
