Archaeological Exploration in Sudan’s Eastern Desert. Oxford, Archaeopress Publishing, 2020, 220 pp., ISBN 978-1-78969-803-9.This volume reports the results of two different research projects, which have in common a research area in the Nubian desert around the route leading from Korosko to Abu Hamed and a research interest in the historic use of this route. The volume is divided into two coherent parts. Part I reports the results of the Centro Ricerche sul Deserto Orientale (CeRDO) expeditions directed by Angelo Castiglioni and the late Alfredo Castiglioni, which were carried out between 1989 and 2006.
