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 with extensive experience in this field.The geographical range of the book extends through the Nubian north, the Middle Nile Basin, and includes what has become the modern Sudan. Using period-based chapters, the regions long-term history is traced and a potential for a more broadly framed and inclusive historical archaeology of Sudans more recent past is explored.This text breaks new ground in its move beyond the Egyptocentric and more traditional culture-histories of Nubia, often isolated in Africanist research, and it relocates the early civilizations and their archaeology within their Sudanic Africa context.This is a captivating study of the areas history, and will inform and enthral all students and researchers of Archaeology and Egyptology.
