Riassunto: A comprehensive investigation of the Kushite kingdom, present day northern Sudan, which briefly controlled Egypt during the 8th century BC and influenced Egyptian affairs for hundreds of years. Morkot examines ancient and antiquarian perceptions of the exotic lands of Nubia and Ethiopia and attempts to tie the towns of Kush to archaeological remains. A large part of the book concentrates on the role of the Nubians during Egypt's conflicts with Libya and the Assyrians.
L'autore: Although still a young researcher, Dr Robert Morkot has already led a distinguished academic life. After completing his PhD on 'The Economic and Cultural Exchange between Kush and Egypt', he was Scholar in Sudanese Archaeology and Meroitic at Humbolt-Universitat in Berlin and then Fellow in Near Eastern Archaeology at the University of Oxford (1987-1991). Since 1992 he has devoted more time to writing and traveling, although he has continued to lecture part-time at the Universities of Surrey, Exeter, and London. He was one of the authors of the controversial book 'Centuries of Darkness' (1991) and is the author of numerous articles on Egypt and the Aegean world.
