Meinarti III

The Late and Terminal Christian Phases

William Y. Adams
Sudan Archaeological Research Society


This is the keenly awaited third of a projected five volumes, presenting the results of excavations carried out at the Nubian site of Meinarti in 1963 and 1964. (Before its inundation, Meinarti was a low-lying alluvial island situated at the foot of the Second Nile Cataract, about 10km to the south of the town of Wadi Halfa.) The present volume carries the story forward through Late and Terminal Christian periods (Phases 5 and 6), and up to the final abandonment of the site around AD 1600. This accomplished series of reports is designed very much as a work of reference, and is consequently highly user-friendly, with each section presented as a self-contained study.
