George Davis Hornblower was at one time an official in the Egyptian Ministry of the Interior where he became interested in Egyptology; he was also interested in Anthropology which strongly influenced his work on Predynastic Egypt and Egyptian religion. He wrote a number of articles on Predynastic subjects such as 'Funerary Designs on Predynastic Jars' and Foundations of Ancient Egyptian Religion'. During the Second World War he took up residence at the Mount's Bay Hotel in Penzance and over the years gave many Egyptian and other objects to the Royal Cornwall Museum.
