This cutting edge synthesis of the archaeology of Nubia and Sudan from prehistory to the nineteenth century AD is the first major work on this area for over three decades Drawing on results of the latest research and developing new interpretive frameworks the area which has produced the most spectacular archaeology in sub Saharan Africa is examined here by an author.
