Francis Llewellyn Griffith (1862–1934) was an eminent BritishEgyptologist of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
F. Ll. Griffith was born in Brighton on 27 May 1862 where his father, Rev. Dr. John Griffith, was Principal of Brighton College. After schooling at Brighton College (1871), then privately by his father, he went to Sedbergh School, Yorkshire (1875-8). Griffith was awarded a scholarship to Queen's College and went up to the University of Oxford in 1879, his enthusiasm for Egyptology already apparent: in the absence of an Egyptological department he taught himself ancient Egyptian. After the establishment of a post in Egyptology, Griffith was appointed Reader in 1901. He was Professor of Egyptology at the university from 1924 until 1932 and died in 1934.
