Kush was one of the great ancient kingdoms of Africa. The ancient Kushites were sometimes in conflict with their northern neighbors, the ancient Egyptians, for control of the Nile River Valley. Their warriors were known for their archery skills. Besides their military efforts, the Kushites built temples and tombs, such as the temple of Dendur, created their own written language called Meroitic, and played an important role in trade in the ancient world. This book explores the civilization of ancient Kush through its social structure. It details the duties of a king, the activities of a farmer, and much more. It also describes some of the discoveries and writings that have led to our present-day understanding of this fascinating culture. Book jacket.
