Experience Nubia's insight:

Notions of pharaonic burial as the only 'reasonable' explanation combine with national sentiment for claimed ownership. Against this consensus are theories that may sound airy and vague, concerning some unknown builders using methods lost forever in the mists of prehistory. - See more at: http://promienie.net/index.php/blog-categories/archeology-history/item/11-geodetics-and-science-of-ancient-egypt#sthash.c6W31EwY.dpuf

"Amara West: Living in Egyptian Nubia" New book British Museum brings past of Nubia vividly to life

Experience Nubia's insight:

In 1300 bc, pharaonic Egypt created a new town on the windswept banks of the Nile in northern Sudan: a town we call Amara West. Designed as the control centre for the Egyptian occupation of Upper Nubia, the walled settlement flourished for 200 years. This book offers a glimpse of the intricacies of everyday life under foreign rule in Amara West.

The royal rings for #Nubian Queen Amanishakheto tell a deeper story about her reign #Meroe #Sudan | Nubia; daily life and cultural heritage | Scoop.it
Image of the Week: The royal rings for Kentake Amanishakheto may have served as part of the crown jewels worn during the initiation rites held for her son, the heir to the throne.
Experience Nubia's insight:

Works of art often make the best witnesses to the spirit of the civilizations that produced them. Underlying principles of social and religious order can even be encoded within the smallest artifacts left behind by long-vanished cultures.

The finger rings seen here are part of a fabulous trove of personal effects once belonging to Queen Amanishakheto, one of the most important rulers of the ancient Nubian kingdom of Meroë. The large group of more than 60 rings and many other types of jewelry were discovered in her pyramid tomb in the capital city, also called Meroë.
