An annotated edition of two letters from B.P. Grenfell to J.G. Smyly concerning the excavations that Grenfell undertook with his partner A.S. Hunt in the Fayyūm in 1900/1901 and 1902. These documents furnish new information and insights about this fieldwork – most interestingly, its competitive and nationalistic nature – as well as other matters; they also possess an immediacy and candor that published accounts lack.
