Experience Nubia's insight:

This gold and carnelian necklace, an artifact from Ancient Nubia, is on view now at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts's newly opened exhibition Gold & The Gods: Jewels of Ancient Nubia. The necklace features 54 gold pendants molded into the forms of a woman wearing the White Crown of Egypt and a ram's head wearing a double uraeus and sun disk. The ram's head is most certainly a representation of the mighty god Amani.

Julia Lee's curator insight, February 10, 5:31 PM

This article introduce about 5 ancient African empires. The first empire is the kingdom of Great Zimbabuwa.Thas e article introducts as one of the most significant civilizations during the medieval period. Great Zimbabwe is famouse the magnificent scale of its structures. According to the article,European stunned by Great Zimbabwe’s grandeur , so they attributed the architecture to Portuguese travelers, Arabs, Chinese, Persians, or even biblical characters, such as King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba in 1800s.  The second empire is Ancient Nubia. The article explains about Nubia as a major trading port for luxury goods such as incense, ivory, and ebony. Nubians used to have3 a great power and they also had phramids like Egyptions. The third emprie is Carthago. Carthago developed into a great trading empire covering much of the Mediterranean. In the course of the long Punic Wars, Carthage occupied some of Rome’s territories before finally being destroyed by its rival in 146 B.C. The fourth empire is Numidia . Numidia was Libyan nation in northern Algeria. It inspired by Roman empire a lot. It is considered to be the first major state in the history of Algeria and the Berber world.  Numidia was inhabited by four race. The last one is Aksum. The Kingdom of Axum was an Ethiopian-Eritrean empire, located in northern Ethiopia and Eritrea and it controlled the Red Sea trade routes. The Axumite civilization was third among the four greatest of the time. 

I found this article was interesting because I learnt those African empires in my social study class. Some of the informations were match with what I learnt. Some of them were the facts that I've never heard before. I wonder why there are only five empires because in my class, I learnt more than five empires. 

8A Justin's curator insight, February 10, 10:02 PM

  The Great Kingdom of Zimbabwe, Ancient Nubia, Carthage, Numibia, and Axum are five ancient African empires besides Egypt that European tried to claim as their own. The Great Kingdom of Zimbabwe lasted from 1220 to 1450. It was the most significant civilization during the medieval ages and its structures were great. Ancient Nubia (Kush) was a region along the Nile River that lasted from 4500 B.C. to 500 A.D. It was known for its rich gold deposits and a luxury trading port. Carthage was founded in 813 B.C. on the Gulf of Tunis. It was a brilliant and great trading empire. Carthage was destroyed by its rival, Rome, in 146 B.C. Numibia lasted from 202 B.C. to 46 B.C. It was a great Black Berber-Libyan nation in northern Algeria. The Kingdom of Axum was a powerful Ethiopian-Eritrean empire, located in northern Ethiopia and Eritrea. It lasted from 100 A.D. to 940 A.D. Axum controlled the Red Sea trade routes.

  This has helped me understand much more about ancient Africa. It has helped me to know more about what we are learning in class, because this article is exactly what I am learning about in class. I think that this article was very useful and will help me to prepare for the upcoming social studies quiz.

Jusvic Dublois & Cooper Baddley's curator insight, February 11, 5:14 PM
