Ancient Palace Discovered in Sudan

Bible and archaeology news

Archaeologists working in the ancient city of Meroe in central Sudan may have discovered the earliest royal building at the site. Though only partially excavated, the large mudbrick building was found directly beneath a later palatial structure built around 2,000 years ago, when the expansive Nubian kingdom centered near the Fourth Cataract of the Nile was at its height. Initial analysis suggests the earlier building dates to about 900 B.C.E. “The very earliest Meroe,” explained lead archaeologist Krzystof Grzymski of the Royal Ontario Museum, “would have been the capital of some sort of local chiefdom or kingdom.”
