    BBC Four
    Lost Kingdoms of Africa

    Nubia
    [​IMG]Not currently available on BBC iPlayer
    Series 1 Episode 1 of 4

    DURATION: 1 HOUR

    Four-part series in which British art historian Dr Gus Casely-Hayford explores the pre-colonial history of some of Africa's most important kingdoms.

    The African continent is home to nearly a billion people. It has an incredible diversity of communities and cultures, yet we know less of its history than almost anywhere else on earth.

    But that is beginning to change. In the last few decades, researchers and archaeologists have begun to uncover a range of histories as impressive and extraordinary as anywhere else in the world.

    The series reveals that Africa's stories are preserved for us in its treasures, statues and ancient buildings - in the culture, art and legends of the people.

    The first episode looks at Nubia, in what is now northern Sudan, a kingdom that dominated a vast area of the eastern Sahara for thousands of years. Its people were described as barbarians and mercenaries, and yet Nubia has left us with some of the most spectacular monuments in the world.

    Casely-Hayford traces the origins of this fascinating kingdom back to 10,000 BC. He explores how it developed and what happened to it and its people, discovering that its kings once ruled Ancient Egypt and that it was defeated not by its rivals but by its environment.

    Looks like some good info is in these clips. For some reason, they are unable to be played. I was interested in how they moved water under the desert. If you are able to do that that you are able go go just about anywhere you want.

    Peace!

    Here is the alternative from the "other" perspective which is so bland and blahzay that what information in it is scewed by the apparent fixation on his point of view and desire to be apart of something

    It was my mistake, I was talking about the clips that in on the BBC site. After I made my post, I kinda figured that your vid is what you were talking about, and not the ones on the site.

    Thanks for the heads up.:)

    Peace!
