Abstract: It is shown that two ``tamely'' embedded compacta of dimension $ \leq k$ lying in $ {E^n}(n \geq 2k + 2)$ have the same (Borsuk) shape if and only if their complements are homeomorphic. In particular, two k-dimensional closed submanifolds of $ {E^{2k + 2}}$ have the same homotopy type if and only if their complements are homeomorphic.
