Dakhla Oasis (Egypt)

The Dakhla oasis is one of the seven oases of Egypt’s Western Desert. It lies in the New Valley Governorate, about 350 km from the Nile, in the southwest of the country. Two excavations at the third to fifth centuries AD sites of Deir Abu Metta and Kellis have revealed a range of textiles, some of which are embroidered.
