Atif Naguib

American University in Cairo Press

The archaeological survey of lower Nubia (1907-12) was undertaken by the Egyptian government in order to discover and record the historical material that would be lost when the district was submerged by the filling of the old Aswan Dam. Egypt's Ministry of Public Work authorized the conversion of one of the largest of the government rest houses, situated on Elephantine Island, into a museum for Nubian antiquities. This is the present-day Aswan Museum. Its collection includes antiquities and artifacts from Aswan and Nubia, covering all periods up to the Coptic and Islamic periods.
