Title: Archaeology on Egypt's Edge
Subtitle: Archaeological Research in the Dakhleh Oasis, 1819-1977
Author(s): BOOZER, Anna Lucille
Journal: Ancient West & East
Volume: 12 Date: 2013
This article provides the first substantial survey of early archaeological research in Egypt’s Dakhleh Oasis. In addition to providing a much-needed survey of research, this study embeds Dakhleh’s regional research history within a broader archaeological research framework. Moreover, it explores the impact of contemporaneous historical events in Egypt and Europe upon the development of archaeology in Dakhleh. This contextualised approach allows us to trace influences upon past research trends and their impacts upon current research and approaches, as well as suggest directions for future research.
