Nubia was situated on the southernmost borders of Egypt. Egypt and Nubia were closely related and at times Egypt controlled part of Nubia, though in the 25th Dynasty Nubian kings controlled Egypt.

The Egypt Centre has several items which are probably from John Garstang’s excavations at Meroe.

We also have items from Mond and Myers excavations at Armant which contain some of the most northenmost A-group (Nubian) and Pan-grave (later Nubian material in Egypt). For more information on the Armant material:
