The modern-day landscape of Sudan, ancient Nubia, is dotted with temples and pyramids—remnants of great kingdoms that flourished in the 1st millennium BC. One of these, the kingdom of Kush, rose to particular prominence as some of their kings ruled over Ancient Egypt as pharaohs of the 25th Dynasty. Largely neglected in the history books, this talk will delve into the stories of early explorers to Nubia and highlight how ongoing fieldwork at Nuri is changing our perception of this part of the ancient world.
