Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the publication of Volume 3 (Know-Hows and Techniques in Ancient Sudan) of Dotawo: A Journal of Nubian Studies, under the guest editorship of Marc Maillot.

Volume 3 can be found online in PDF form at

It is also available in print form via punctum books at, where the higher than usual cost is due to the high-quality color images we have included to accompany so many of the articles.

We are excited about the quality of this volume and hope that you will distribute news of its publication widely.

 Our thanks,
