More information

Published date: 2006
Additional Information: Between 1999 and 2003, the University of Southampton conducted excavations at the site of Quseir al-Qadim. This excavation was prompted by the idea that the site was not the minor port of Leucos Limen as had been thought but the important site of Myos Hormos. This site, in tandem with its sister harbour at Berenike, saw the bulk of Rome's trade with India and the East. The present volume deals with the survey and excavation of the site, with volumes on the finds to appear at a later date.Part 1: The Region and the State Introduction (David Peacock and Lucy Blue); Regional survey (David Peacock et al); Site survey (Graeme Earl and Darren Glazier); The sedimentary history of the harbour area (Lucy Blue); Part 2: The Excavations Overview (David Peacock and Lucy Blue); The Roman harbour (David Peacock et al); The Islamic harbour (Rebecca Bridgman et al); The Roman town (Penny Copeland et al); The Islamic town (Jill Phillips et al); Discussion and Conclusion (Lucy Blue and David Peacock).
