Term: Budge

Sir E. A. Wallis Budge (1857–1934) was the keeper of Egyptian Antiquities in the British Museum from 1892–1924). He translated and oversaw the publication of numerous Egyptian books, the most famous being the Book of the Dead. Although the text of that book was found in crypts, its actual name was The Book of Coming (or Going) Forth by Day. It is claimed by some that he was associated with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
