Talk by David Meredith
Fourteen years ago David Meredith and a coUeague began their exploration of the Roman roads and quarry settlements in the Eastern Desert of Egypt. In this talk the speaker gives an account of the rich red porphyry so highly prized by the Romans, and of its only source-the quarries at the summit of Smoke Mountain.
