Throughout its long history Qasr Ibrim was the most important settlement in Egyptian Nubia.  During the Middle Ages it was both an administrative capital and a centre of Christian worship.  As an archaeological site it has produced an unprecedented wealth of material, including objects of wood, leather, and textile that are rarely preserved archaeologically.  Also preserved are hundreds of specimens of written material in many different languages.  This volume describes and illustrates in detail the architectural, artifactual, and textual finds from the earlier medieval period, from about AD 550 to 1200.  An earlier volume in the same series (Qasr Ibrim. The Later Medieval Period) describes the remains from the succeeding period.

Between 2002 and 2006 the Egypt Exploration Society’s expedition to Amarna made a detailed study of the house of the chariot-officer Ranefer, first excavated in 1921. Particular attention was paid to the remains of an underlying earlier and smaller house that had been largely demolished to make way for Ranefer’s own. At the same time a group of smaller houses for the ordinary people of the city were excavated for the first time, in an adjacent part of the site called Grid 12. Together they represent a cross-section of residential life at Amarna. The results are presented in two complementary volumes, the first devoted to the excavation, architecture and environmental remains, and the second to the objects. They lead on to reflections on domestic living and manufacture at Amarna, and on social dividing lines within the city.

This book contains a detailed description of the pottery from a number of Late Period embalmers’ caches and Late Period tombs discovered between 1975 and 1995.  Through a series of reasoned arguments it is dated to the period ca. 550-400 BC., and is thus co-eval with the Persian Period. Archaeologically the Persian Period is but little known, hence the material presented in this book will go a long way to aid our understanding of the material culture of this fascinating period.  In addition, this book also includes discussions of the funerary practices of these times as well as a general survey of where this ceramic material fits within the northern Late Period pottery tradition.
