Archaeology of Egypt, Nubia and the Middle Nile

Module code: AR1558

Egypt has always had very strong connections to areas to the south, such as Nubia (modern Sudan) and beyond, with the river Nile playing a key role in the movement of people, goods and ideas. In this module you will explore the main cultural and political developments in both Egypt and Nubia, and you will consider the ways in which archaeology reflects the relationships between the two states. You will be introduced to the growth of pyramid-building in Egypt and other evidence for complex social relations, the powerful Kingdom of Kush in southern Egypt and Sudan is much less well known, but equally fascinating.
