The attractions of Egyptian art and archaeology of the Dynastic Age had always been so strong that the earlier and cruder stages of Egyptian culture were seriously neglected. While the study of prehistoric man by means of his stone implements left buried in the glacial gracels, kitchen middens, and caverns of Western Europe had been steadily advancing, only slight progress in such studies had been made in the Nile Valley. It had long been Breasted’s hope that the Oriental Institute would undertake, or at least begin, the collection of the vast body of evidence revealing the prehistoric career of man in Egypt and Western Asia.
