Jacques Jean Marie de Morgan, born on 3 June 1857 in Huisseau-sur-Cosson, died in Marseille on 12 June 1924, was an explorer, Egyptologist, archaeologist, prehistorian, Iranologist, and civil engineer from the Paris school of Mines.
Jacques de Morgan, from a Welsh family, was educated at the Lycee Lons-le-Saunier. He graduated from the school of mines (year 1879) in 1882. He then visited the gold mines of Transylvania, Eastern Armenia, India, Malaysia, the Caucasus and Persia. In Malaysia (1884-1885), he was involved in the exploitation of tin mines. He also collected butterflies, molluscs and herbs. He widely published his discoveries and became officer of Academic awards.
From 1886 to 1889, he was in Akthala (Armenia) with Maurice Chaper in order to exploit a copper mine on behalf of French investors. In 1888 he was dismissed by the company, after which he returned to France and widely published his discoveries.
