Abstract

The 2006 field season of the Humboldt University Nubian Expedition to the Fourth Cataract was short and eventful. Due to the political situation, the mission was asked to leave within days after arrival in the concession area. This report relates the results from archaeological investigations undertaken in this short period of fieldwork, during which both the general survey on Us Island and the excavation at US025 of a brick kiln, which had supplied building material to the church site US022, were continued. In addition, the events which preceded our premature departure are outlined in order to offer a chronicle which may one day be of historical interest itself.
