Synopsis: A comprehensive survey of Sudanese ancient cultures, the history of archaeology in Sudan, current work and recent trends. The Sudan is the largest country in Africa. For millennia it has been the zone of contact between the peoples of Central Africa and those emanating from the Mediterranean world. The National Museum in Khartoum houses one of the finest collections of antiquities from the Nile Valley and is of international importance; however, the vast quantity of material is in store and has rarely if ever been seen by the public. This exhibition will seek to display some of the finest objects produced during all phases of human settlement from the Palaeolithic through to the Islamic period. A large number of these beautiful treasures will be on public display for the first time outside the Sudan and most are recent discoveries. Key items will seek to highlight the contrast between the world views of many Sudanese cultures: from the demonstrations of worldly power of the Kerma kings accompanied to their deaths by 400 sacrificed persons, to the humble graves of Christian rulers; from the grandiose temples built by the Egyptian Pharaohs to the churches and mosques of later periods.

About the Author: Derek A. Welsby has been directing excavations in Sudan since 1982 on behalf of the British Institute in Eastern Africa and the Sudan Archaeological Research Society. He is currently an Assistant Keeper in the Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan in The British Museum, with special responsibility for the Sudanese collections.Julie R Anderson is the Special Exhibition Curator for Sudan: Ancient Treasures. She has worked on archaeological projects in Sudan since 1987.
