Qasr Ibrim: The Textiles from the Cathedral Cemetery

Qasr Ibrim: The Textiles from the Cathedral Cemetery
Elisabeth Crowfoot, N. Adams

  • Paperback | In Stock | £20.00

  • Paperback | Not Available | $70.00


The dry height of the site of Qasr Ibrim above the Nile river has resulted in superb preservation of organic material. The textile collections from the excavations have already become one of the largest from any site in the middle Nile valley. They are unique as an unmatched sequence, dating from the Twenty-Fifth Dynasty to the Late Ottoman Period (750 - 656 BC) and ranging from the domestic remains of town life and tiny exotic imports of the sites great years to the cast off garments and furnishings, pitifully mended and re-mended, from ages of disaster and decline. The important textiles from the Cathedral Cemetery at Qasr Ibrim, including those from the burial of Bishop Timotheus, are published here with detailed descriptions and a photographic record of the most significant pieces.
