You do not have access to this book. How to get access.
This book provides an account of the excavation of a single house at the Nubian site of Qasr Ibrim in 1986. The work provided a microcosm that investigated residential continuity in the context of cultural change, at a place remarkable for the survival of organic evidence. House 1037 should be considered in the context of other excavations at Qasr Ibrim, conducted for many years on behalf of the Egypt Exploration Society. This raises questions about its role in the context of African archaeology, as well as its wider relationships. The book is also a study of the problems arising from delayed publication of archaeological field research and of the extent to which they can be overcome. Much of the site has now been destroyed or damaged by the rising waters of Lake Nasser, so that the book is a record of an investigation that cannot be repeated: it is a 'resurrection' of the work.
