AERA: Treasures from the Lost City of Memphis now available!
Treasures from the Lost City of Memphis is now available online
Treasures from the Lost City of Memphis is the first detailed catalog of the remarkable collection of artifacts from the Mit Rahina museum. The museum sits on archaeological remains in the heart of the Memphite ruin field and displays a substantial and remarkable collection of monuments, including several unique pieces that deserve to be more widely known. With this book we hope to offer insight into the museum's collection and context, as well as the history and excavation of Memphis, Egypt's ancient capital city.
Treasures from the Lost City of Memphis, richly illustrated and researched by AERA archaeologist Aude Grazer Ohara, is now freely available to students, scholars, and museum visitors from around the world.
