The memoirs reprinted in the present volume are of various dates, ranging over a period of thirty years. Hence in the original text of some of the earlier memoirs, statements and references occur here and there which, viewed in the light of later archæology, may be considered obsolete or imperfect. These parts of the text I have modified or completed so far as could be done, without recasting the memoir in which they occur or introducing too manifest anachronisms.
