This volume records the results of excavations and investigations
undertaken by the EES between 1963 and 1998 on the largest
surviving building, the Cathedral Church, at the site of Qasr
Ibrim, one of the very few not totally destroyed by inundation
following the construction of the Aswan Dam and the creation of
Lake Nasser. It sets out the archaeological evidence, which has
resulted from excavations and a detailed study of the surviving
fabric, and provides an interpretation of that evidence for the
construction of the Cathedral Church, including its subsequent
abandonment and use as a domestic dwelling and then an Ottoman
Mosque. It also places the building and the site within the context
of medieval Nubia.
