British excavations at the important archaeological site of Qasr Ibrim have yielded numerous written sources composed in Greek, Coptic, Old Nubian, and Arabic. However, only a small number of them have been published so far, among them some sixty Old Nubian texts, both literary and documents. They were edited between 1988 and 1991 by Gerald Michael Browne. After twenty years of stagnation in this field, Ruffini took up the task initiated by Browne and produced the edition of further sixty-two Old Nubian texts, this time only documents. Texts included in this volume supplement Ruffini’s 2012 monograph (Medieval Nubia. A Social and Economic History) and provide illustrattion for his recosntruciotn of social and economic life of the Middle Nile Valley in the 12th–14th century. The edition of each document is supplied with a photograph as well as extensive linguistic and historical commentary and the volume is accompanied by a set of well organised indices.
