Rezension:

"This beautifully illustrated volume offers the general reader a survey of this little-known civilization and is highly recommended."--Library Journal"[B]rings the ancient unknown kingdom of Nubia alive through essays and beautiful photos."--Booklist"[Ancient Nubia: African Kingdoms on the Nile] is arguably the definitive work on the subject to date. And the on-location lush color photographs of Chester Higgins Jr. are worthy of a volume of their own!"--KMT: A Modern Journal of Ancient Egypt

Vom Verlag:

Gloriously illustrated and impressive in scope, this book represents a comprehensive overview of ancient Nubia. It opens with a thematic survey with contributors addressing topics such as the rediscovery of ancient Nubia and the development of archaeological work there, including the widespread destruction in the wake of the construction of the Aswan and Merowe dam, its physical geography, and historical outline. There follow chronological reviews of Nubia's art and architecture, chapters on cultural aspects such as religion, burial practices, texts, daily life, costume and pottery. The second half of the book consists of a gazetteer of sites, following the course of the Nile from North to South: descriptions of the archaeology are accompanied by plentiful plans and photos as well as notes on the history of their excavation.
