Literature Cited
 When I first read the field notes of Annie Alexander and Louise Kellogg, I was fascinated by the descriptions they wrote about the places they went and the plants and animals they found there. By publishing my field notes on the Internet I hope to follow a little bit in their tradition.

  SCHWEICH LECTURE ON BIBLICAL ARCHAEOLOGY

The Leopold Schweich Trust Fund was set up in 1907, a gift from Constance Schweich in memory of her father. It provided for public lectures to be delivered on subjects related to ‘the archaeology, art, history, languages and literature of Ancient Civilization with reference to Biblical Study’. A special lecture has been commissioned this year to mark the centenary of the Schweich lectures.
