An ignored chapter of history tells of a time when kings from deep in Africa conquered ancient Egypt. -- National Geographic Society

Editors of National Geographic Magazine (Author)

Paperback pages 34-59 (February 2008)

For 75 years Nubian kings ruled over ancient Egypt, reunifying the country and building an empire. Until recently, theirs was a chapter of history lost in the shadows. One of the greatest—and last—of the Nubians who ruled Egypt in the seventh and eighth centuries B.C., the pharaoh known as Taharqa restored the grandeur of ancient temples along the Nile while fighting off Assyrians who invaded from the north. Great pictures in this issue. A must buy for your home library.
