Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with a discussion on the emergence of the Twenty-Fifth Dynasty. The changes in tomb types and mortuary religion at el Kurru reflect a political process during the course of which a local princely family of apparently limited resources established its power over a territory which was significantly expanded within a rather short period of time. The borders of the original nuclear territory were expanded to the First Cataract in the north and the Butana in the south in c. one century according to the short, and in c. two and a half centuries according to the long chronology. The accomplishment of the southward expansion of the el Kurru dynasty is demonstrated by the earliest burials in the elite cemeteries at Meroe City. The chapter further talks about Kush in Lower Nubia.

Keywords: Butana; el Kurru burials; Lower Nubia; Napatan Kings; Twenty-Fifth Dynasty
