About the Author

Charles Bonnet—a world-renowned archaeologist—began excavations in modern-day Sudan over fifty years ago and established the site of the capital of the Kingdom of Kush in the mid-second millennium BCE. He was instrumental in building a museum in Sudan to preserve the statues found at the site. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., is the author of numerous books and has written extensively on the history of race and anti-Black racism in the Enlightenment. His most recent works include Stony the Road and The Black Church. He is the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard University.

Reviews

A splendid summary of [Bonnet’s] life’s research…This well-illustrated volume will be of interest to Egyptologists and Nubiologists, as well as a wider audience without expert knowledge…Bonnet’s excavations and his studies, as well as his contributions to the new Kerma site museum discussed in this book, allow a more balanced assessment of this African civilization which has long been hidden in the shadow of Egypt.
*African Archaeological Review*

Bonnet presents the extensive results of his five decades of excavations at Kerma, Sudan…This book’s greatest strength is its highly detailed architectural descriptions that capture the grand scale and extraordinary complexity of the site. For a researcher interested in architecture and urbanism in the Nubian Nile Valley, this volume would be an important and valuable resource.
*Journal of Near Eastern Studies*
