THE NUBIANS

Nubians are a Nilo-Saharan ethnic group indigenous to the region which is now Northern Sudan ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฉ and Southern Egypt ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฌ They originate from the early inhabitants of the central Nile valley, believed to be one of the earliest cradles of civilization

Nubian history can be traced from c. 2000 BCE onward to 1504 AD, when Nubia was divided between Egypt and the Sennar sultanate and became A.rabized. Nubia and Ancient Egypt had periods of both peace and war. Around 3500 BCE, the “A-Group” of Nubians arose, existing side-by-side with the Naqada of Upper Egypt.

Known for rich deposits of gold, Nubia was also the gateway through which luxury products like incense, ivory, and ebony traveled from their source in sub-Saharan Africa to the civilizations of Egypt and the Mediterranean. Archers of exceptional skill provided the military strength for Nubian rulers.

A Nubian often prefers to marry one of his or her c0usins. A Nubian wedding ceremony often lasts for 40 days, with a long series of r.ituals. According to traditions, the groom has to present several gifts, particularly garments for the bride, her mother and sisters.

The region of Nubia begins at the point just south of Khartoum in the Sudan where the Blue and White Nile join, and is linked to Egypt by the Nile River, which flows northward through both lands to the Mediterranean. Nubia is a region along the Nile river located in what is today northern Sudan and southern Egypt.
