This volume presents the results of a survey, carried out between 1986 and 1992 in the territory immediately adjacent to the fortress of Qasr Ibrim. The survey demonstrates the presence of a Meroitic population in the area of Ibrim from at least the early 1st century BC. The volume is illustrated with maps, and plans, photographs and line drawings of the many structures and artefacts located during the course of the survey. Penelope Wilson discusses the inscriptions and symbols incised in the roadway to Qasr Ibrim, together with other inscribed artefacts.
