PETER LACOVARA, PhD

Director, The Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Archaeology Fund

During Egypt’s 25th Dynasty, Nubian kings occupied the pharaonic throne and built a great empire stretching from central Africa to the Mediterranean. Ever adaptable, these ancient Nubians were not only innovators, but also able to blend aspects of Egyptian and other African cultures into their own–while influencing the development of Egyptian civilization. Recent scholarship has shown how the Nubians, ignored and discounted for centuries, were remarkable trailblazers.
