About the Author

John P. Cooper is an Arabist and maritime archaeologist specializing in the maritime landscapes of the medieval Islamic world. He is currently a lecturer at the Institute of Arab & Islamic Studies of the University of Exeter.


A major contribution to our knowledge not only of the maritime dimensions of the Nile River, but also of the geography of medieval Egypt in general. The book is clearly a product of arduous research conducted over many years and Cooper manages to cover a wide array of disparate subjects in
interdisciplinary fashion while retaining a tightly focused topical approach that is easy to follow. The text reads well and the work as a whole brings together so many sources and so much information that it is indispensable for anyone studying the material life of Egypt in any premodern
interval.--Journal of Historical Geography
No student of Egyptian history can ignore The Medieval Nile, which also provides a model that no river historian can fail to consider for inspiration.--Lincoln Paine, The Northern Mariner

A volume that deserves to be read by all scholars of Egypt, regardless of the period they study, for the insights into the river and its people that it brings.--International Journal of Nautical Archaeology

An important contribution to the maritime perception of the Nile. . . . The combination of historical, geographic, meteorological and hydrological data draws a comprehensive picture of navigation and sailing conditions in the Nile during the medieval period.--Deborah Cvikel, The Mariner's
