The Naga Project

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.
