Description: Excavation of an A-Group and C-Group cemetery at Kostamneh, Nubia (near el-Dakka) directed by John Garstang of the University of Liverpool Institute of Archaeology on behalf of the Egyptian Excavations Committee in 1906. The site is within the area of Lower Nubia between the 1st and 2nd Nile cataracts, about 6 miles north of Quban (ancient Egyptian 'Baki'; Greek 'Contra Pselchis') but is now beneath the waters of Lake Nasser. The Garstang Museum of Archaeology (University of Liverpool) has 84 glass negatives, antiquities, some field notes and pottery corpus from the excavations. Other antiquities are known to be in museums at Manchester, Bolton and Glasgow.
