Sir Ernest Alfred Thompson Wallis Budge was an Egyptologist and originator of many controversal translation books for Ancient Egyptian language.


Stargate (1995)

When Doctor Daniel Jackson discovers the Giza cartouche and a translation made on a black board, he asked who translated this cartouche and thinks that he must have used Budge. He wonders how they keep printing those books. He rewrites the translation to his own.

"The Torment of Tantalus" (1945)

In 1945, Doctor Langford and Ernest Littlefield talk about the Stargate and what it could be. When Littlefield states that the symbols are not a combination but destinations, Langford replies that a "doorway to heaven" (Budge's translation) can means many things, as for example, those who pass through may simply die.

"1969" (1969)

In 1969, Doctor Daniel Jackson et Captain Samantha Carter pay a visit to Catherine Langford. Jackson pretends to be Heinrich Gruber's son. He mentions Gruber's notes, speaking of a second artefact called "Doorvay to Heaven" (Budge's translation with a German accent).
