Philip Smith

Norman Muller writes:
I came across this article while browsing an archaeology website, and to my amazement found Philip Smith's name being prominently mentioned. He mentioned to me during my visit earlier in the month that he had done some excavating in Egypt, but I had no idea he was involved in the discovery of what now turns out to be paleolithic drawings!

Attached is a photo I took of Philip in his home.

What Smith found were engravings in vertical rock faces, not drawings on the surface using a paint or drawing medium of some kind. The accompanying photo in the article shows a woman making a tracing of the engravings in black ink on mylar, which can be confusing to some.
