Professor Lech Krzyżaniak (died on 10 July 2004) was an outstanding Polish archaeologist, museum expert, lecturer and member of numerous international organisations, including the Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology at Warsaw University, the UNESCO Executive Committee, the Polish National ICOM Committee and the International Association of Egyptologists. Since 1966 he conducted excavations in Egypt, Sudan and Algeria, contributing to studies on the onset of early agricultural civilisations in North-East Africa. Prof. Krzyżaniak was the author of more than 200 articles and three books on the last stage of antiquity in Egypt and Sudan, and made his knowledge available not only to Polish students but also at St. John’s College, Cambridge and the universities in Calgary and Berlin. In 1982 Prof. Krzyżaniak was appointed director of the Archaeological Museum in Poznań, which thanks to his initiatives and zeal became a meeting place for scientists exchanging experiences, exceptionally attractive for all those interested in archaeology as well as Polish and world culture.
