Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This is the second of a projected series of five important volumes presenting the results of excavations (1963-4) carried out at the Nubian site of Meinarti (near the Second Nile Cataract, about 10km to the south of modern-day Wadi Halfa). Occupation of the site covers some 18 levels, ranging from perhaps 200 AD to the early Post-Christian periods, or approximately 1600 AD. This second volume (following on from the analysis of the two first Phases – the Meroitic and Ballaña) carries the story forward through the Early and Classic Christian periods, designated as Phases 3 and 4. The work includes a summary in Arabic, a section containing 40 pages of b/w photographs, and a back-cover pocket-insert with seven separate plans/lay-outs. A comprehensive register of finds from Phases 3 and 4 is presented as an Appendix.
