Join Dr. Julie Anderson for an exploration of the Dangeil archeological site, presented by The National Arts Club.
Excavations at Dangeil, located close to the Nile in what is now central Sudan, have uncovered a previously unknown 1st century CE temple dedicated to the god Amun. Earlier rulers discovered there in a statue hoard include the celebrated Kushite Pharoah Taharqo. This is one of many discoveries at Dangeil throwing unexpected light on African history from antiquity into the medieval period and later.Buy tickets/get more info now
