William  Matthew  Flinders  Petrie  - the  father  of  Egyptian  Archaeology  - developed 
and  applied  statistical  analysis  to  pottery  from  prehistoric  sites  and  by  this 
established  sedation  as  a relative  dating  method  as  a major  contribution  to 
Egyptian  Archaeology.  In  this  scientific  paper  he  describes  special  varieties  of  the 
conception  of  the  supernatural  in  ancient  Egypt.  The  source  text  also  includes  a 
list  of  "principal  works  on  Egyptian  religion"  and  a list  of  works  "on  religions 
ancient  and  modern".
