A Reconstruction of the South Town of Naqada (about 3300 BC)

'South Town' is the archaeological name for an extensive settlement site at Naqada; it seems to be the town for the people buried in the Naqada Period cemeteries.

The reconstruction is highly hypothetical. The few remains are published in:
Petrie/Quibell 1896: pl. LXXXV (plan of some excavated large scale structures)
with additions from Kaiser 1961: 16, fig. 3 (new plan of the whole site)
