DUSH
Remains of houses

Dush, Egypt


Dush, Egypt


There are more houses between the basilica and the temple complex than you will be able to count. There has been no or little excavation performed here, so it is difficult to decide whether there is much or little left of the house walls.
But it is clear that the architecture was not very different from what you see in the oasis villages that were used up until the Egyptian government moved in with their prefab concrete houses. Houses of Kysis (Dush) were quite small, built as close to one another as possible and streets were narrow.
