Through its 14 chapters, this book presents the outcomes of the recent exploration of Bahriya, an Egyptian oasis located in the Western Desert about 350 km south-west of Cairo. Part I of the volume is devoted to the southern part of the Oasis (also known as El-Hayz) and the exploration carried out there by the team led by the Czech Institute of Egyptology, Charles University in Prague. Part II concentrates on the northern part of the same oasis bringing forth the results of scholarly research by the French team led by Universitede Strasbourg. Complementing the two parts is Part III with the final chapter which deals with water-management in the Western Desert as a whole. Containing chapters written by archaeologists, Egyptologists, philologists and natural scientists, this richly illustrated book attempts at providing as comprehensive picture of the past of the Bahriya Oasis as can be drawn from the hitherto research, encompassing a wide range of aspects from settlement history and environment to material culture and written evidence. Lenka Sukovagraduated from the Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague in 2008. In 2003-2006, she was the Assistant Curator of the Department of Prehistory and Ancient History of the Near East and North Africa of the Naprstek Museum-National Museum in Prague. Since 2007, she works in the Czech Institute of Egyptology, Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague where she is concerned with the research into the history and dynamics of occupation of Eastern Sahara during the Early and Middle Holocene. Since 2009, she is the director of the Institute's interdisciplinary research project concerned with the prehistoric occupation of Jebel Sabaloka in the Sudan. She is a PhD candidate at the same institute, with a research project focused on the rock art of Northeast Africa in the context of landscape and archaeology. Marek Dospel holds master's degrees in History, Latin, Egyptology, and Classical Archaeology and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. programme at the Czech Institute of Egyptology, Charles University in Prague. He is involved in the Institute's exploration of Bahriya as a specialist in late antique and Byzantine Egypt, with focus on Coptology, documentary papyrology, and the interplay between the informative value of contextualized texts on the one side and archaeological data on the other. His publications include studies on Egyptian Christianity, material culture of late antique Egypt, as well as editions and annotated translations of Greek, Latin, and Coptic texts- both literary and documentary. He has also extensively published on Franciscan missionaries in Ottoman Egypt and Abyssinia.
