Résumé
The initial season of the Southern Dongola Reach Survey (SDRS) was conducted on the right bank of the Nile between Old Dongola and Khor Makhafour near Ez Zuma in January-March 1998. (It was preluded by a short reconnaissance in February 1997, carried out in the desert east of the Istabel fortress.) The 1998 season of the SDRS had to comply with some prerequisites. In accordance with NCAM suggestions, the entire concession area was inspected on a low-intensity survey basis, the vulnerability of the sites was examined and rescue operations initiated where necessary. The architectural chef-d'oeuvres of the Southern Dongola Reach, the Christian strongholds of Bakhit, Deiga and Istabel, were photographed from the air and their condition carefully documented. All activities were introductory in character. A high-intensity survey will begin in the next season, starting from the southern end of the abandoned village of Old Dongola and continuing upriver to Diffar.
