TitleReferee's report by George Howard Darwin, on a paper 'On the orientation of the pyramids and temples in the Sûdân' by E A Wallis Budge
Date25 April 1899
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. The paper is archaeological rather than scientific in nature. A brief note of the investigations and their confirmation of orientation theory might be published. Hopes that, if declined, the author is informed that it is not an intent to depreciate the paper, 'but merely that it falls outside our line'.

Subject: Archaeology, Astronomy
