Siwa Oasis

Siwa Oasis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The oasis of Siwa was famed in antiquity for its Oracle of Amun, consulted by Alexander the Great. Today, Siwa is known for its fine dates and its unique way of life. In this already classic work, renowned archaeologist Ahmed Fakhry reviews Siwa's past and present. Beginning with a survey of the deserts and oases of Egypt, the book moves on to look at contemporary life in Siwa, then traces its history from palaeolithic times to the present, and concludes with a documentation of the antiquities of the oasis.

About the Author

Ahmed Fakhry was, until his retirement in 1965, professor of ancient Egyptian history and ancient Near Eastern history at Cairo University. He died in 1973.
