Birth: 1790
Death: 1869

Harris was a well known collector of Egyptian papyri who lived in Aleaxandria as a supply merchant to the army. Harris purchased the famous Harris Papyrus on a visit to Luxor and retained the document as a part of his collection. After Harris died his daughter sold his collection to the British Museum for 10.000 Pounds. The Harris Papyrus is the largest and most detailed papyrus recovered from any ancient Egyptian site ; it is 41 metres long and therefore provides a vast and highly detailed text. The Harris papyrus deals with important aspects of the reign of Ramesses III who came to the throne in 1186 BC.
