Type of fieldwork:
- Work this season focussed on ten successive temples superimposed on the temple site at Abydos.
- Petrie also led work at the 'Shunet el-Zebib' or what was referred to as the 'ancient fort' of Second Dynasty ruler Khasekhemwy. This is in fact the enclosure of Khasekhemwy. A cemetery in and around this was also explored, notably producing a group of Dynasty 12 amulets and Aegean and Egyptian pottery figures date by Petrie to the New Kingdom.
- Margaret Murray and Winifred Hansard worked on the Egyptian Research Account explorations of the Osireion.
