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. This book accompanied a traveling exhibit of the same name and includes black-and-white photographs of more than 300 objects as well as a selection of color photographs. Detailed line drawings of wall paintings, cemeteries, town plans, and architectural reconstructions help reveal the complexity of Nubian society.
