South Town of Naqada


Petrie/Quibell 1896: pl. LXXXV

Petrie does not indicate the find spots of the houses on his maps. The 'South town' was the settlement site of the Naqada Period, as shown by Petrie's descriptions and the published plans, and surveys, as well as by more recent excavations.

Petrie/Quibell 1896: 54: (about the town) 'It also shows the carelessness about squareness and angles which we see in the forms of graves. The thick wall of the northern part appears to be a fortification with divisions within it.'
