Gathered together here are the fruits of 60 years of research by the late Sir Laurence Kirwan into the history and archaeology of the mid 1st millennium AD in the Middle Nile Valley, papers previously scattered through a wide range of publications. Kirwan's fieldwork in the region, undertaken between 1929 and 1936, kindled a life-long interest in the transition from the pagan Kushite kingdom to the medieval Nubian states of Nobadia, Makuria and Alodia (Alwa) and of their conversion to Christianity in the 6th century AD. The 25 studies, one published here for the first time, were often of seminal importance when they first appeared, the author being exemplary in his use of the written sources to elucidate the archaeological data. As the preface by the editors shows, the views expressed remain fundamental to modern scholarship, offering valuable insights into this still relatively obscure period of transition from the ancient to the medieval world.

This exhibition catalogue includes entries and essays by over fifty leading scholars covering the last 200,000 years. More than 320 objects, drawn from the Sudan National Museum collection, are described and illustrated in colour, ranging from Palaeolithic stone tools, Pharaonic statues and Christian wall paintings to armour of the early Islamic period. Many of these little-known treasures have never been exhibited previously, others are on display for the first time outside Sudan. Most are recent discoveries and, importantly, have an accurate provenance as they come from archaeological excavations. Key items highlight the contrast between the world views of many Sudanese cultures: from the demonstrations of worldly power of the Kerma kings, accompanied to their deaths by 400 sacrificed persons, to the humble graves of Christian rulers; from the grandiose temples built by the Egyptian pharaohs to the churches and mosques of later periods.
