Geological Development of the Nile
Rushdi Said is something of a personal hero of mine - a geologist who has spent a considerable amount of time writing about the Nile's development since its first creation. This knowledge is central to an understanding of prehistoric contexts and how the behaviour of the river at different times influenced daily life in historical Egypt. This Al Ahram weekly article is an interview with Rushdi Said, and offers a summarised description of the Nile's development.
