  • Kerma was famous for its artisans or skilled workers who made delicate pottery

  • In the mid-1400s BC Thutmose III took control of Nubia and controlled it for 700 years

the kingdom of napata
The Kingdom of Napata

  • Napata was located near the fourth cataract of the Nile
  • The 25th dynasty of Egypt were the Napatans of Nubia

the kingdom of meroe
The Kingdom of Meroe
  • Meroe was between the 5th and 6th cataracts of the Nile
  • Iron ore was found in the surrounding deserts of Meroe which allowed weapons of iron and tools to be made
  • These weapons helped Meroe to control trade routes to the Red Sea allowing trade with India, Central Africa and Rome
  • Little evidence of Meroe exists because their writing system could never be understood.
