Ancient Egypt
A Forgotten Oasis in Egypt's Western Desert
by Mohamed Kenawi and Francesca Simi
This book is the first text dedicated to Gara Oasis, one of the smallest oases in Egypt. It presents a general overview of the history, archaeology, and the landscape of the oasis, which has a population today of about 700.
Gara Oasis is located 110 km northeast of Siwa Oasis, in the Western Desert and remains an important transit hub connecting the Nile Delta with the western cultures of Egypt and Libya. In the 4th century BC, Alexander the Great probably passed through Gara Oasis on his way to the Amun Temple in Siwa, leaving behind "Camp of Alexander" as one of the local names for Gara.
