Tyshkevich, K. P.

Konstantin Pievich Tyshkevich, Evstafi’s older brother, joined with him in excavations and the museum, but he was more interested in ethnography per se than archeology. He worked for the Ministry of Finance in Warsaw in the 1830s, and participated in the Polish uprising. He joined the of Eastern American Ethnographic Association and the Paris Geographic Society. Ironically, his connection to the Rumiantsev Museum comes from when many of the artefacts he had collected for the Vilna Museum of Antiquities were transferred there after the Polish rebellion 0f 1863.
