The results of the first season of archaeological excavations at the small port site of Quseir al-Qadim on the Red Sea are presented in this volume. Archaeological evidence testifies to the importance of this port, then called Leukos Limen, for the Roman trade in the Indian Ocean in the first and second centuries A.D. After a millennium of abandonment, this trade was revived under the Mamluks (thirteenth-fourteenth centuries), when the trade reached East Africa, India, and China. This report presents copious illustrations of the artifacts of daily life in these two periods. A chapter by Martha Prickett presents the detailed results of a regional survey around Quseir and along the route leading to Luxor and the Nile valley.
