Temple Graffiti Reveals Stories from Ancient Sudan

A new exhibit of temple engravings at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology tells the story of the ancient Sudanese kingdom of Kush. These graffiti can still be seen today at several sacred sites in what was the kingdom of Kush – on a pyramid and in a temple at El-Kurru, at a seasonal pilgrimage centre called Musawwarat es-Sufra, and in the Temple of Isis at Philae, at the border with Egypt. The graffiti allows a glimpse into some of the activities of non-elite people and their religious devotion to particular places.
