Petrie’s head was not lost. It is still sited at the Royal College of Surgeons.

Thank you for your comment.
You are correct – transportation of his head was delayed due to the war and then when it did arrive it lost its label and was not identified until many years later. This information will be added to the article.
Thank you again for taking the time to help make NWE a valuable information resource.
