By an agreement made with the University of Pennsylvania in 1907, the expedition was to be conducted for five years on behalf of the University, and the antiquities obtained would be presented to the University Museum. The authors, curator and assistant - curator of the Egyptian Department of the Museum, were charged with the duty of conducting the excavations and publishing the results.
