First edition. Quarter-sized surface tear on front jacket panel, minor loss from jacket spine head. 1962 Hard Cover. 198 pp. This personal account of an archaeological adventure takes place in a scene of intense contemporary interest. As the High Dam-about five miles above the Aswan Dam-rises on the Nile, a lake is forming that will soon be 300 miles long. Under its waters a very ancient country, rich in prehistoric relics and in the monuments of Egyptian, Roman, Turkish and Christian art, will vanish completely. This book sets out the reason why the High Dam must be built, examines the loss to human knowledge it may involve, and describes in personal terms what certain individuals and groups are doing to try to save as much as possible.
