country, and covered over with a great
mound of debris and wind blown sand,
Karanis is one of the few sites which
have survived the ravages of time.
This site was chosen as one of
three, at which the University expedi-
tion to the Near East is working, for
two reasons. There were evidences
that the ruins there were preserved
better than on many Egyptian sites.
In the second place diggings by the
natives over the past period of years
have brought to light such a number
of papyri and objects' of historical
worth that systematic investigation
seemed promising.
Investigation, Professor Boak con-
tinued, has brought to light the fact
that the mound has been the site of
three successive cities. From the na-
ture of the case it has been necessary
to study the history of these cities in
reverse order. After careful study of
the uppermost ruins,-the latest in
point of time,-had been made, contin-
ued excavation has made possible the
examination of the two lower ruins.
These cities are supposed to have been
in existence in the fourth and fifth
centuries A.D., the late second and
early third centuries A. D., and the
second and third centuries B.C., re-

tion has reclaimed many objects, in-

of the home life of the people, and of
the agricultural and industrial meth-
ods used in early times.
