This is the fourth and final volume presenting the results of excavations carried out at the Nubian complex of Meinarti in 1963 and 1964, and concludes an important and impressive body of work on an equally important and impressive archaeological site. Previous volumes dealt with the pre-Christian remains (Meinarti I Adams 2000), the Early and Classic Christian remains (Meinarti II, Adams 2001), and the Late and Terminal Christian remains (Meinarti III, Adams 2002). This concluding publication considers the church and the cemetery – two features of the site whose use continued through most of the Christian period. Both were described briefly in the earlier volumes in relation to specific occupation levels, but they are comprehensively dealt with here. The work includes colour plates, separate fold-out maps, and a 6-page summary in Arabic.
