Passport to Adventure

Greg Oakes sent over a link to a feature on classic era archaeologist James Henry Breasted that features some beautiful passport scans and period photography.

"At Archaeology Now there is an article with accompanying photographs describing archaeologist James Henry Breasted's 1919-1920 journey through the Middle East. Accompanying this is a set of photographs of Visa and entry stamps, letters of introduction etc that I thought you might be interested in – I see a great Jackson Elias passport prop in the offing!"

If I have some time this weekend I'm going to try recreating some of the passport stamps. The resolution of the scans is a little low to isolate them and lift clear copies.
