An informative introduction to the history and culture of ancient Nubia from the Bronze Age through the Christian period. The author places Nubia in its historical and cultural context as an important African civilization.

Detailed line drawings of wall paintings, cemeteries, town plans, and architectural reconstructions help reveal the complexity of Nubian society.
