Summary

Underneath the desert sands, a forgotten culture awaits your discovery...

Its pyramids jut like wind-ravaged arrowheads from the ground, dominating the skyline of the desert plane. Sun-scorched air whistles through the carved stones of its ancient monuments, whispering of grandeur long gone, now nearly swallowed by unmerciful desert sands. Its secrets whisper. And its riddles beckon.

But now the mysteries of ancient Nubia are now laid bare, waiting for you to discover them!

The kingdoms of ancient Nubia rivaled the world’s greatest empires for thousands of years. For thousands of years, Nubia’s legendary kings and queens made war with the empires of Egypt and Rome, its jewelry and iron were traded as far away as India and China, and its gold built the temples and tombs of civilizations throughout the Mediterranean. For thousands of years, Nubia and Egypt shared their gods, art, architecture, and trade goods. Nubia’s achievements rivaled the greatest powers of the ancient world. And Nubia’s archaeological remains still dominate the landscapes of southern Egypt and Sudan.

Here are just a few of the secrets awaiting your discovery:

  • The mystery and shocking theories behind one of the world’s most puzzling religious monuments - the ancient standing stones of Nabta Playa
  • The archaeological secrets of the A, B, and C-Group Cultures, whose descendants shaped the empires of northeast Africa
  • The power of the ancient Kerma Culture, the first incarnation of the Kushite kingdom who nearly toppled the Egyptian empire
  • The mighty Kingdom of Kush, who dominated the trade and cultures of northeast Africa and beyond, establishing the reign of Egypt’s famed Black Pharaohs
  • The mysteries of Nubia’s pyramids, which outnumber the pyramids of Egypt 2 to 1

Listen to this audiobook to discover more about ancient Nubia. Its secrets wait to be revealed!

Humanity still has a long way to go

Does bookers insightful and historically compelling, when compared with other contemporary writers that write about Kush, one through comparative analysis it’s pointed to the fact that similarities exist, and they even written into the Bible, whether some people believe in the Bible or not one can still look at it as a relic of historic significance which is a archive of things that happened in the past, once again we see that eugenics has been used to deny knowledge and deny the Fountainhead of knowledge from people of a darker colour skin, if you are looking at this book and want to know more about humanity with an open mind then I thoroughly recommend this book to you, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have
