Islamic Archaeology in the Sudan

Archaeopress, 2004 - 152 páginas
In the 7th century AD Arabic-speaking nomads moved into the Sudan from the Suez and Red Sea. This was just the first of a series of migrations, the complex story of which is presented in this study. Drawing on archaeological, architectural, ethnographical and literary evidence, Elzein explores the evidence from three phases of migration (640-1300, 1300-1500 and 1500-1800), looking at differences in settlement types, religious beliefs and material culture. Sections focus on the different kinds of burial and tomb structures, urbanism and military architecture and weapons.
