Nubian Monuments

Nubian monuments of Meroe, Sudan 300B.C.-300A.D.

Nubian monuments in the city of Meroe, Sudan reveal themselves to be more numerous than those of the 800 mile strip of Giza in Egypt.  With over 200 pyramids, and burial sites of 44 Kings and Queens, the iron rich pyramids of Meroe prove to be rich with history.  Meroe in the 6th century became the place of the "black pharoahs" commonly associated with the Kushite dynasty who adopted many of the cultural norms of their neighbors, the Egyptians.  For those interested in exploring this is a precious find, as it is quite unknown to the average tourist.  For more information click here
