Magazine: Current World Archaeology 21

"What was life like in an Egyptian oasis? The Dakhleh oasis is huge - today it is home to some 70,000 people - and the Dakhleh Oasis Project has been charting the environmental background throughout history. The sands are always shifting: they swallowed up - and sometimes revealed - Neolithic farmers, an Old Kingdom bakery, two Egyptian temples - as well as both a Roman and a Moslem town. See how the ever-fickle environment changed lives through the ages."
