Mediaeval settlement found in Sudan

A major stronghold and a Mediaeval settlement have been discovered by Polish archeologists in Sudan at the start of a three year research project realized by the Prehistory Institute of Poznan University and the National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums of Sudan.

The Hosh esh-Sheitan strongold, or Satan’s Court, is situated in the Nile valley.

“There is no written mention of it and yet it is one of the biggest strongholds in this part of the Nile Valley”, says Polish archeologist Mariusz Drzewiecki.

Another interesting find is a settlement on the Nurein hill.
