Archaeology Now Presents "Black Pharaohs: Egypt, Nubia, and Cultural Merging:
Often our identity is comprised of many factors and many influences. Identity in the world of ancient Egypt is no exception.
During Egypt's 25th Dynasty, Nubian kings occupied the pharaonic throne and built a great empire stretching from central African to the Mediterranean. Ever adaptable, these ancient Nubians not only innovated but also merged aspects of Egyptian civilization. New scholarship has shown how the Nubians, ignored and discounted for centuries, were remarkable trailblazers. Come listen to Peter Lacovera, Ph.D., director of the Ancient Egypt Heritage and Archaeology Fund present on this fascinating topic as Archaeology Now wraps up its 2019 season.
