This volume provides a brief historical and geographical background to the district of Abyan in the Yemen, followed by a description of the sites identified during the 1994 excavations of sites from the Islamic period carried out by a team from the School of Oriental and African Studies. The final section of the book details the archaeological finds (mainly pottery and ceramics) made during this research and, with the aid of maps, photographs and diagrams, indicates where each find was made and the significance of the various pieces.
