The post-colonial approach focuses on literary productions related to the phenomenon of colonialism with various components, some of these components are much more popular among the academic community such as hegemony, centre-margin, subaltern voice and orientalism. But the features that make up the post-colonial flow are very diverse; palimpsest is one of these components, which means writing over previous writings. The colonizing forces that brought their culture, literature and language into the colony will put them on top of the pre-colonial culture of the native people. But they cannot completely erase it yet, and the traces of the pre-colonial culture exist under the colonial layers. The post-colonial culture of the colonial countries is like a skin that contains the former natives' works in addition to the recent colonial writing. Covering these lower layers can be the purpose of post-colonial studies, which are the cultural birth certificate of the natives; This research aims to find the lower layers of Egypt's vanished native culture in the novel "A Piece of Europe" by Radwa Ashour, relying on the Analytical-descriptive method and the theories of recent researchers of post-colonial studies like Bill Ashcroft, and explain to get new perceptions and analyses of this novel depending on lesser-known components in post-colonial studies. The results of this research, aside from creating a new space in the post-colonial critique of the mentioned novel, show that the narrator of the story tries to reveal the economic, literary and media palimpsests of the colonial discourse that destroyed the native layers and show the audience the construction of its colonial goals, native values and actual goals hidden behind it, and to warn them against the planned constructions of the colonial discourse.
