Corroded pieces of metal, stamped lumps of copper, broken bits of glass with partial inscriptions, fragments of textiles, tiny beads - these were the raw material found at al-Fustat, the site of the first Muslim settlement in Egypt in the seventhMoreCorroded pieces of metal, stamped lumps of copper, broken bits of glass with partial inscriptions, fragments of textiles, tiny beads - these were the raw material found at al-Fustat, the site of the first Muslim settlement in Egypt in the seventh century.

These findings were built up into a collection by Dr Henri Amin Awad. The ten studies in this volume - covering beads, bone, coins, glass weights and vessel stamps, medical instruments, medical prescriptions, metal objects, and textiles - demonstrate the wide range of archaeological material found in al-Fustat, a site no longer accessible since most of it has been buried under development or lost to a rising water table.
