Chapter Summary

Nubia has invariably been tied to its northern neighbour geographically, culturally, historically and also in the scientific study of its people and artefacts. Egypt takes a central position due to the large number of Egyptian artefacts found in Nubian contexts. This chapter examines what artefacts have been found, in what numbers and where. It concentrates on Egyptian pottery, siltstone palettes, Egyptian stone vessels and copper objects taking these to represent imports from Egypt. A more detailed discussion as to why these particular objects were taken to be Egyptian objects is outlined. All copper objects have been included in this study as Egyptian. It is particularly worked copper objects such as chisels and axeheads that should be viewed as imports. Cylinder seals have also been included as possible imports. They are rare and each seal will be discussed on a case by case basis.

Keywords: artefacts; copper objects; cylinder seals; Egypt; Egyptian pottery; imports; Nubia; siltstone palettes; stone vessels
