This is the first report on survey work and excavations carried out
by the Sudan Antiquitites Service, supported by UNESCO, between
1960 and 1963 in the northernmost region of Sudanese Nubia, an area
threatened by dam construction. William Adams describes the study
area, the methodology of the work carried out there, its objectives
and priorities, and previous work undertaken. What follows is
essentially a catalogue of some of the 262 sites recorded and
investigated (which included sites dating from the Neolithic to
early modern period), focusing here on those of Meroitic and
Ballana age. The descriptions are arranged according to site type -
monumental, habitation, other non-mortuary sites, mortuary sites -
and location, from north to south.
