Advancing The Research

The ancient African civilizations of Kush and Nubia are under threat of being flooded and permanently destroyed. Four new proposed dams in northern and central Sudan will soon displace tens of thousands of indigenous people, and inundate countless ancient archaeological sites in Sudan. Despite the richness of this archaeological region, which is complete with pyramids, temples, burial grounds, rock art, and ancient residential areas, it is not considered by UNESCO as a region with World Heritage Sites. Numerous unexcavated sites near the proposed Dal Dam, Kajbar Dam, Shereik Dam, and Upper Atbara Dam will be underwater beginning in the next three years if these dams are built.
