This volume records the expedition's 1961 finds from the cemeteries and settlements around Bab Kalabsha, including the architecture of the sacred complex of late Roman times on the heights above Bab Kalabsha, a small valley chapel at Taifa, Christian remains from settlements on the island of Darmus, and refuge-shelters erected on the high desert. The discovery of two cemeteries with distinctive remains dated to the middle of the fourth century A.D., roughly contemporary with the desert refuges, highlight the excavations. Large domical stone tumuli with high stone enclosures are attributed to Blemmye rulers of the area who were a major force in the political upheaval of Late Roman Egypt.
