Charles Bonnet, member, Institute of France; professor emeritus, University of Geneva
Dig into the ancient city of Dukki-Gel, situated north of the capital of the ancient kingdom of Kerma (240 to 1500 BC). Learn how the site’s archeology has led to insights on this once flourishing society and its connections to central Sudan and beyond. Finds from this area include monumental black granite Pharaonic statues, described as “masterpieces that rank among the greatest statues in art history.” –Al Ahram Weekly
