Ayyubid Cairo

A Topographical Study Neil D. MacKenzie

Free online facsimile edition of the classic survey of the layout of medieval Cairo

This comprehensive study, first published by the AUC Press in 1992 examines the structure of the Ayyubid administration in Cairo and the associated military, religious, and commercial milieux. It goes on to survey in detail the changes in the general layout of Cairo--in defenses, governmental and private buildings, water resources, religious institutions and cemetery areas, and markets and commercial establishments.
