It is entitled Report on the Monuments of Nubia Likely to be submerged by Sudd-el-Ali Water, published by the Government Press, Cairo, 1955, for the Antiquities Department of the Ministry of Education. After a preface by the Director-General of the Antiquities Department, Professor Mustafa Amer, there follows a letter addressed to the Minister of Education by Dr. Selim Hassan. In the letter he mentions the great need for a project to save the monuments, and that the assistance of foreign colleagues and UNESCO would be gratefully accepted. The committee,which visited Nubia in December, 1954, and January, 1955, consisted of Dr. Selim Hassan (president), Dr. Ahmed Fakhry, Labib Habachi, architect Mohammed Ahmed Ibrahim, and architect Mustafa Sobhi Mohammed. The results of their survey and their recommendations, together with cost estimates, are the subjects of the report. An account of previous scientific work is given before their description of the sites. en_US
