PAPERBACK
Category: Archaeology
Synopsis
This volume presents the results of the second season of excavations, during which a Roman merchant's 'villa' and part of the central administrative buildings were excavated. A large section of the Islamic town was also cleared, within which were artifacts ranging from China to West Africa. This report presents the excavations and the artifacts recovered; these latter include the pottery, glass, lamps, Roman ostraca and Arabic letters, fauna, flora, shells, and organic materials, the latter including textiles, wood, leather, and basketry. Also included are brief reports on the survey of Bir Kareim, the site of a Roman gold mining settlement and shrine about 20km from the port, and a discussion of the old mosques in the modern town of Quseir.
