The Naga Project has a new web site, which is today’s featured link. The site is available in German as well as English.
An excerpt from the website:
As a secondary royal residence for the kings and queens of Meroe, Naga was a city of splendour. Three of its temples have survived intact through the millennia, ten further temples and palaces, concealed under huge mounds of rubble, await excavation along with the vast necropolis with its hundreds of graves.
The above link takes you to the first post of the 2015 season at Amara West. The team has been blogging about their work on site since December 2012 (previous posts are available on the blog archives).
Additional information about the research project, the excavators and the archaeological site can be found here.
The featured link today is that of the Nubia Museum, located in Aswan, Egypt.
Entirely dedicated to Nubian civilisation and culture, the museum’s collection spans from Prehistory to the present. Many of the artefacts displayed were recovered during the International Campaign to Save the Monuments of Nubia.
From the SARS website:
The Society aims to promote interest in the Sudan’s cultural heritage and raise awareness of its place in the history of mankind. Most significantly, the Society mounts expeditions to excavate and record threatened sites before they are lost to knowledge forever.
The Society will feature web links to archaeological projects at various sites in Sudan as entries on its blog. These links will also be added to the new Links page (available from the menu). Links to relevant scholarly journals and associations will also be featured.
Dig directors are encouraged to submit their websites and blogs for consideration. Please contact the ISNS Honorary Secretary or the ISNS webmaster by e-mail.
