I'm sure work is being done but it is not brought in the news as much as news about egypt.

I have read a handful of articles about the Nubian dynasty of Taharqa and such.

This is very interesting and I'd like to learn more. Do you have any sources or websites where I might read about the evidence for this? Any help would be appreciated.

I recently watched a special about excavations in Nubia. It was well worth the hour, let me tell you. I don't remember too many specifics, but there's a damn going up and, as has happened in Egypt and many other countries, many historically significant sites will presently be under water. Confused The archaeologists were frantically trying to identify and excavate sites before the waters rose, and they found a wealth of materials. They also found a wealth of Egyptian statuary that the Nubians had brought back from Egypt after they had been driven out by the Assyrians.

No, these were definitely of Egyptian origin. The artwork and style do not lie, and many of the pieces predated the Nubian conquest of Egypt. The excavators were digging this stuff out of the sand in the remains of Nubian tombs they had found.

I been away for awhile,computer was acting up and i had some other busy work.

NO i think we are talking about two different things,the statues i was talking about were of the nubian kings found in the sudan and they were nubian.
here is the link.
by the way some of these websites would still have dates of nubian culture going back to 3500 b.c. and we know know that lower nubian culture goes back to 3800 b.c. and upper nubian civilization goes back to at least 5000 b.c. at kerma and futher goes back to 8000 b.c.

Hey, kendo, welcome back. We've missed our resident Nubia expert. I see we were talking about two different things, yes. Thanks for the links, by the way.

You might be interested in this page. The Oriental Institute here in Chicago just opened its new Nubian exhibit this past weekend. I've yet to see it--the exhibit is small but apparently some very nice pieces are on display. Wink
