The Findings of a Swiss Archaeological Team in Northern Sudan


The Swiss archaeologist Charles Bonnet spent many years exploring the remains of Nubian civilization in northern Sudan, focusing particular attention on the site of Kerma, the capital of the Nubians, and finding evidence of the existence of a genuine civilization in the region.

The rare discovery of the black pharaohs on the site "Doukki Gel" is considered to be the culmination of the work of Charles Bonnet and the Swiss team: Their findings provided new and precious information about Nubian civilization during the era of Kerma Kingdom, and some aspects of the relationship that existed between the Egyptian pharaohs and Nubian kings in northern Sudan.
