Chapter Summary

The kingdom of Noubadia was united with the kingdom of Makuria, its southern neighbour, around AD 620. Nobadia as an autonomous polityfirst a complex chiefdom, then, from c. AD 410, a kingdomexisted for about two and a half-three centuries. The introduction of a new, aggressive Lower Nubian policy in the Early Dynastic period was preceded around the end of the First Dynasty by the withdrawal of Egyptian presence in Palestine. The centuries following the Egyptian withdrawal from Nubia at the end of the Twentieth Dynasty witnessed the emergence of an unknown number of polities in Upper Nubia. By the middle of the eighth century BC they were unified and the native kingdom of Kush extended its power over Lower Nubia and then for almost one hundred years over Egypt as well. The Ptolemaic occupation of Lower Nubia established once again a regime of coexistence.
