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 finds from the immediate pre-Christian period, from about AD 350 to 600.
