Archibald Henry Sayce (1845 -1933) was an English philologist and archeologist whose studies contributed significantly to the vindication through archeology of the historical sections of the Old Testament. A long-time professor at Oxford, Sayce was probably the foremost Assyriologist of all time, as well as an expert on the Hittites. When he began his career, he was steeped in higher criticism, but the hard facts from the archeological and linguistic investigations in which he played a leading role contributed to his conversion to Biblical Christianity. He authored over 25 major books in his fields.
