Charles Brasch 1909 -1973
Charles Brasch is an important literary figure in New Zealand. He gets a listing here, for during his residence out of New Zealand he spent three seasons in the 1930s working at the famous Egyptian archaeological site of Tel el Amarna. The excavations of the time were being carried out by the Egypt Exploration Society under the direction of John Pendlebury.
His autobiography is: Indirections: a Memoir, 1909-1947. 1980 Oxford University Press Wellington, New York. On line
This has relatively little about Egypt, as a section was excluded to reduce the length. This was corrected by a later publication dealing with his time in Egypt.
His poetry - see Poems - has archaeological references.
Brasch has a Dictionary of New Zealand Biography listing DONZB.
