Book review

REPRINT of 1911 edition. Folio. Book viii, 94 p. LXXIV pl. (incl. front., plans, partly fold.) Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1911. Several distinct cemeteries lie east of the ancient city of Meroe, located in the north of the modern state of Sudan. The distribution of burials and differences in grave styles, ranging from simple pit burials to pyramid capped tombs, as well as the variety of artifacts accompanying the burials, represent complex patterns from which chronological and socioeconomic inferences can be derived.

Four cemeteries were partially excavated in 1910 by john Garstang of the Institute of Arachaeology. The account by Prof. Garstang here given of his work on the site during the winter of 1909-10 is good and clear, and abundantly illustrated by plans and admirable photographs by Herr Schilephack. Color illustrations are reproduced in color. The most valuable section of the work is a treatment of the Meroltic inscriptions discovered by Griffith, in which the progress he is making in the decipherment of the lost tongue is evident.
