With many b&w photos and other illustrations in the text. 8vo, black paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. Robert B. Jackson (b. 1961). "When Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire in 30 B.C. after the deaths of Antony and Cleopatra, its vast and mysterious frontier lands had an important impact on the commerce, politics, and culture of the empire. This engrossing book part history and part gazetteer focuses onRomes Egyptian frontier, describing the ancient fortresses, temples, settl ements, quarries, and aqueducts scattered throughout the region and conveying a vivid sense of what life was like for its inhabitants. Robert B. Jackson has journeyed, by jeep and on foot, to virtually every known Roman site in the area, from Siwa Oasis, forty-five kilometers from the modern Libyan border, to the Sudan. Drawing on both archaeological and historical information, he discusses these sites, explaining how Rome extracted exotic stone and precious metals from the mountains of the Eastern Desert, channeled thewealth of India and East Africa through the desert via ports on the Red Se a, constructed and manned fortresses in the distant oases of the Western Desert, and facilitated the expansion of agricultural communities in the desert that eventually experienced the earliest large-scale conversions to Christianity in Egypt. Elegantly written and illustrated with many handsome photographs, the book will be a treasured resource for archaeologists, classicists, and travelers to the region." - from the jacket. Part I.

[...] The photographs of the Carrara quarries lay bare a vast and dramatic landscape as imposing as the Grand Canyon, reaching down from the mountains like a carefully orchestrated disaster of immense and inhuman size. But this vastness, hardly picturesque, is the result of steady attrition at the hands of man, a canyon carved by centuries of labor and ambition." - from the rearcover. Very good. 40.00

NASH, Roland J. and Frances L. Stewart. Melanson : A Large Micmac Village in Kings County, Nova Scotia. Halifax: Nova Scotia Museum, 1990. Pp. (2),iii-xii,1-260. Illustrated. 4to, black comb-binding, cream card covers. Curatorial Report No.67. "The Melanson Site (BgDb-7) is a Ceramic Age village on the Gaspereau River in Kings County, NOva Scotia. While known to collectorsand archaeologists for some time, the site remained an unknown entity, cur iously large in size and unconected to the arrival of the Acadians. The Melanson project was initiated in 1985 and involved excavations in 1986 on thewestern end of the site. The project sought to define the economic base of the village and to comprehend its patterns of growth. Ecological examinati on of the Gaspereau catchment area plus the recovery of a good floral sample and small faunal sample indicate primary reliance on the secondary economic pursuits. Analysis of the material culture reveals a typically Micmac occupation spanning the last 2000 years. During this time, the Middle and Late Ceramic Periods, the village apparently expanded upriver and grew in size, the operative social group likely being a composite band. Distinctive features of the Melanson Site include large pits on the latest part of the site and the use of the chalcedonies from nearby Scots Bay on North Mountain. ALso on North Mountain is Cape Blomidon, the home of Glooscap, and it is argued here that the pre-eminence of the Melanson Site is a product of the availability of gaspereau, the proximity of the stone quarries and the supernatural qualities of Blomidon." - from the abstract.
