The Ancient Sudan

An uninterrupted sequence of pottery spans 5th millennium BC until the Early Christian Period in the Nord Sudan. The Semna stele (circa 1870 BC) stands for Egyptian colonialism in Nubia while the Nastasen stele (327 BC) is emblematic of the independent kingdom of Napata. The altar from Wad Ban Naga and the gold jewellery of Queen Amanishakheto (1st century AD), which is on display in the treasure chamber, are a unique legacy from the Kingdom of Meroë.
