Projects

These are some of the projects undertaken by different members of the Union for Nubian Studies.

Medieval Nubia Wiki

The Medieval Nubia Wiki is dedicated to the collaborative publication of scholarly resources for the study of medieval Nubia. It is a site that will grow as scholars from the international community use and contribute to it.

It contains a Source Book on Medieval Nubia, a bibliography of publications regarding Medieval Nubia, and other scholarly information about the region.

Medieval Sai Project

The Medieval Sai Project is the blog written by Alexandros Tsakos (along with occasional guest authors), where there are published views and news from the world of Sudan Archaeology and Nubian Studies with a special focus on Medieval Nubia, the period between ca. the 5th and the 15th centuries CE.

Meroe Archival Project

The Meroe Archival Project (MAP) re-examines Peter L. Shinnie’s domestic excavations at the Royal City of Meroe in order to:

  1. provide research exchanges and training between University of Reading and the University of Khartoum,
  2. produce a more refined understanding of diachronic change, economic and social life at Meroe,
  3. capture the memories of those who took part in these critical excavations.

MAP is supported by a British Academy International Partnership Scheme. Staff from the University of Reading, University of Khartoum, and the National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums (NCAM) has been fundamental for the development of this project.

Nubian Image Archive

The Nubian Image Archive is a public domain repository on Flickr for historical and contemporary images of Nubia.
