Scope and Contents:
"Threshing is often a community or village activity. The harvest of several households is combined and processed, usually by flailing. After flailing, grain and chaff are separated by winnowing, sometimes aided by screening." [Vogel J., 1997: Encyclopedia of Precolonial Africa, Altamira Press]. During his trip to Egypt, Elisofon visited Manfalout, Asyut, which today is primarily agricultural area. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for American Institute of Architects, directing the Egyptian portion of the documentary on Ancient Egypt, March 1965 and September 1965.
