Title: A Historiography of Archaeological Research at Meroë, Sudan
Author(s): BOOZER, Anna Lucille
Journal: Ancient West & East
Volume: 16 Date: 2017
This article joins together a substantial survey of antiquarian and archaeological research at ancient Meroë (Sudan), capital of the Meroitic kingdom (ca. 7th century BC-4th century AD, most broadly), with an exploration of contemporaneous historical events in Sudan, Egypt and Europe. This contextual approach makes it possible to trace influences upon past archaeological research trends and the changing views upon Sudanese heritage within Sudan and internationally.
