Explore the History of Nubia, an ancient kingdom between the 1st and 6th Cataract on the Nile. The journey along the Nile in this film series begins in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, where the Blue Nile joins the White Nile. Khartoum is a place to learn about the spiritual and historical heritage of Sudan, the largest country in Africa. In the area of the 4th Cataract where the huge Merowe Dam was built, archaeologists from the National Museum in Gdansk, Poland, save priceless monuments of prehistoric cultures. The visit to Banganarti and Old Dongola gives an insight into the history of Makuria, the Christian kingdom of ancient Africa. Monuments of Meroe, Jebel Barkal and Kerma show different periods of Nubian history.
