This chapter provides an interpretative discussion of the Red Sea during the ‘long’ Late Antiquity. It begins by examining the decline and fall of the Roman Empire in the Red Sea, before going on to consider the Muslim conquests and the caliphate in the Red Sea, and then concluding with a consideration of the legacy of the ‘long’ Late Antiquity with particular reference to the creation of the world of the Cairo Geniza.

Keywords:   Late Antiquity, Roman Empire, Muslim Caliphate, Cairo Geniza
