CV, sorry to have been so long in making this reply, certain things beyond my control led to my absence.

I would like to make a reply to your post concerning one of the greatest archaeologists of our times. That was, of course, Petrie!

I just wondered about the strangness of his second middle name.

Was he given the name at birth?, (Flinders)! If so, his family surely had some premonitions of his ultimate fame.

This word or name "flinders", seems to mean something similar to "tatters, pieces, debris", etc.

Please see;

Some times truth is "stranger than fiction?" And he sure did "dish" out the results! Smile!

It will be interesting to see how this pans out. The anti-bible crowd is already lining up arguments. It was just a few years ago they denied David's existence, until the stele was found with his name and dynasty.
This article tells a bit more:

Pre-Inca tomb found

''Peruvian archaeologists working in the north of the country say they've found an unspoiled tomb from the Lambayeque culture.
Initial studies indicate that the tomb belonged to a priest-like individual who performed human sacrifices during fertility ceremonies.''

Egypt's iconic antiquities chief fired

''Egypt's antiquities minister, whose trademark Indiana Jones hat made him one the country's best known figures around the world, was fired Sunday after months of pressure from critics who attacked his credibility and accused him of having been too close to the regime of ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
Zahi Hawass, long chided as publicity loving and short on scientific knowledge, lost his job along with about a dozen other ministers in a Cabinet reshuffle meant to ease pressure from protesters seeking to purge remnants of Mubarak's regime.''

After seeing an episode of "Show me the Mummy", he deserves getting fired.

The riddle of the Syriac double dot: The world's earliest question mark
Smile
 
Question for a question mark.....lol.
 
(PhysOrg.com) -- Cambridge University manuscript specialist, Dr. Chip Coakley has identified what may be the world’s earliest example of a question mark. The symbol in question is two dots, one above the other, similar in appearance to a colon, rather than the familiar squiggle of the modern question mark. The double dot symbol appears in Syriac manuscripts of the Bible dating back to the fifth century.
