W.M. Flinders Petrie worked at the sites of Hu and Abadiyeh (Diospolis Parva) near Naqada in Upper Egypt for a single season from 1898-1899. The finds were dispersd to many museums around the world, including The Nicholson Museum at Sydney University. This paper examines some of the reasons why this site remains one of the most poorly-published of Petrie's excavations, the environment of rivalry amongst Europeans working in Egypt at that time, and the history behind the Nicholson acquisitions.
