Nubia's remote setting has not only lent it an air of mystery, but also isolated it from exploration. This book attempts to document some of the recent discovers about ancient Nubia, with its remarkable history, architecture, and culture. By doing so, the authors of the essays give us a picture of this rich, but unfamiliar, African legacy.

Nubia still isn't as well understood as one would like, but archaeologists are finally giving it the attention it deserves. Drawing together most of the top experts working today, this massive book may be the most comprehensive introduction to the subject.
