Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the kingdom of Kush, then pay attention...

The kingdom of Kush was completely forgotten once it met its end. The stories of its might didn’t survive in the cultures of its successor kingdoms, possibly because Christianization soon followed, which required the people of the Nubian region to turn toward the East and the myths of the Christian messiah.

There was no more room for the divine rulers, Amun and Re, or a place for their sons, the kings of Kush. The kingdom continued to exist in the stories of some classical writers, but it was often considered as nothing more than a distant, probably even imaginary, kingdom, where the uncivilized savages lived.

It was not until the early 20th century that the kingdom of Kush received its rightful place in history. When the first archaeological survey of Nubia took place between 1907 and 1911, the distinctive cultural aspects of the Kingdom of Kush emerged, and it was finally seen as a separate entity from Egypt. 

In The Kingdom of Kush: A Captivating Guide to an Ancient African Kingdom in Nubia That Once Ruled Egypt, you will discover topics such as:
 

  • Nubia and the Emergence of the Kingdom of Kush
  • From Alara to the Twenty-Fifth Dynasty
  • The Rulers of the Twenty-Fifth Dynasty
  • Relations Between Kush and Egypt Continue
