This volume is not a textbook or a handbook. It does not survey the history of the Nile Delta in a linear, streamlined and homogeneous way. Neither is it a volume that pretends to account for all places, peoples and stories from or tied to the region. Rather than aiming for exhaustiveness or completeness, the contributors offer over a dozen ‘stories made of true events’ about the history of Egypt’s ‘Northern Land’. Taken together, the following chapters illuminate the historical significance and complex webs of the region’s shifting landscapes and imperial histories over the course of over five millennia.

The Nile Delta
