Archaeological Sites of the Island of Meroe,Sudan.



This heritage site is  a semi-desert landscape between the Nile and Atbara rivers which was the heartland of the Kingdom of Kush, a major power from the 8th century B.C. to the 4th century A.D. The site consists of the royal city of the Kushite kings at Meroe, near the River Nile, the nearby religious site of Naqa and Musawwarat es Sufra. It was the seat of the rulers who occupied Egypt for close to a century and features, among other vestiges, pyramids, temples and domestic buildings as well as major installations connected to water management.
Thank you very much Gert for the beautiful card mailed while on tour in Sudan.
