Ian Begg studied archaeology in Greece at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. He has not only participated in excavations in Sicily, Greece, Crete and Egypt, but also initiated a survey on the island of Karpathos. As the Bagnani Research Fellow at Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, he has worked on the Gilbert and Stewart Bagnani archives for two decades. Two more volumes are anticipated on their early lives in Europe and Egypt, where they conducted excavations at Tebtunis. Together with his Italian colleagues in Padua and Venice, he has co-authored many papers and articles on these astonishingly productive excavations in the 1930s.
