Ancient Textiles from Nubia: Meroitic, X-Group, and Christian Fabrics from Ballana and Qustul
Christa C. Mayer Thurman and Bruce Williams
The textiles in this exhibit came to light as a result of archaeological salvage operations conducted by the Oriental Institute between 1962 and 1964. When Egypt (United Arab Republic) and UNESCO appealed for scholarly assistance in excavating areas about to be flooded by water rising behind the Aswan High Dam, the Oriental Institute responded by sending out several expeditions which worked in Egypt and the Sudan.
