Storyline

Once a powerful, sprawling presence in Northern Africa, the ancient kingdom of Nubia now lies buried beneath mounds of red brick rubble in the Sudan. Forgotten by history and largely neglected by archaeology, its cities have lain buried for centuries, harboring priceless secrets of a civilization that once rivaled Egypt. Join world-renowned archaeologists Julie Andersen and Salah Ahmed as they unearth Dangeil - a thriving Nubian city that once sat at the juncture of several prominent trade routes. While excavating a massive temple to the god Amun, the team makes a surprising discovery that could solve the mystery of why the city was abandoned. Written by Anonymous

Nubia, a competitor to Egypt that we still don't know much about
23 May 2007 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

The documentary, narrated by Keith David, describes Nubia, a kingdom south of Egypt, with a similar religion and evolution. At some time, though, it was invaded and ransacked, all the writings and mentions of their gods smashed and destroyed.

We are still searching for the Rosetta stone that would help translate the remaining writings left, and the "hero" of the story is a woman archaeologist who is trying to find it.

As we didn't manage to translate their texts, we don't know much about them, so the film could not have shown a lot of things. It basically said nothing more than "we know little of the Nubians", but it is a nice watch and it reminds that Africa has a long history that many of us know almost nothing of.
