Wadi Qitna and Kalabsha South 1

Details

Wadi Qitna is located in Egyptian Nubia, 65 kilometers south of Aswan, on the west bank of the Nile. The cemetery here occupies the slopes and adjacent high ground along the edges of the valleys, with the highest concentrations of graves situated along rock outcrops where stone was readily available. This book describes excavations at the Roman and Byzantine tumulus graves and the finds unearthed, particularly the pottery which forms the basis of the Eastern Desert Ware type.
