“These Mighty Pyramids Were Built by One of Africa’s Earliest Civilizations”

Photo by Nichole Sobecki / VII for National Geographic. A “haboob” (sandstorm) rolls across the Meroe? pyramids in Sudan. Most of the 41 tombs here belong to the royals of the powerful Kingdom of Kush (900 B.C. to A.D. 400), which ruled large parts of the middle Nile Valley.

“The mysterious rulers of Nubia, in present-day Sudan, erected hundreds of tombs and temples that rival Cairo’s.” See photos by Nichole Sobecki in this piece for National Geographic Magazine.
