Documentary Description


Once a powerful, sprawling presence in Northern Africa, the ancient kingdom of Nubia now lies buried beneath mounds of red brick rubble in the Sudan. Forgotten by history and largely neglected by archaeology, its cities have lain buried for centuries, harboring priceless secrets of a civilization that once rivaled Egypt. Join world-renowned archaeologists Julie Andersen and Salah Ahmed as they unearth Dangeil a thriving Nubian city that once sat at the juncture of several prominent trade routes. It's a startling find, but also rather puzzling. Evidence indicates that Dangeil was a bustling center of commerce and worship until the city and its monumental temple were inexplicably abandoned in the latter half of the Meroitic age. Watch as Anderson and her team battle native sandstorms and punishing heat to find the answers to this Nubian riddle. Along the way, they discover massive works of art and architecture, evidence of the still-undeciphered Meroitic language, a dazzling cache of jewels and priceless artifacts and the long-dormant secrets of a forgotten kingdom.
