dc.description.abstractThis work describes excavations conducted by Gertrude Caton-Thompson at the site of Hureidha in the Wadi ‘Amd in eastern Yemen. Early chapters outline evidence of the earliest human occupation in the Hadhramaut and relicts of ancient irrigation in Wadi ‘Amd. Excavations of a small temple and farmstead at Hureidha are then outlined, followed by a description of several cave tombs in neighbouring valley cliffs. Specialist reports describe the pottery and other objects recovered, as well as inscriptions found in the temple and on portable objects.
