Fortresses of Upper Nubia in the light of archaeological and ethnological researches

From simple tower houses for one family or a small group of people, to huge defensive complexes with bastions and bastiles guarding the borders of empires and the trade routes. From non-invasive archaeological methods such as photography, analysys of the satellite imagery or laser scanning, to surveys and excavations.

The book presents the fascinating world of very diversified fortresses that were built over many centuries in the Upper Nubia region (today’s northern and central Sudan). However, it can be also read as a kind of „guide on archaeology”. Its informal narrative involves the reader into the every-day reality of the archaeologists, shows how they prepare for the research, and what kind of the problems they have to face during their work. The book also raises some new research questions and encourages the readers to start their own adventure with archaeology.

Keywords: defensive structures, fortresses, Upper Nubia, archaeology, methodology of archaeology
