The earliest investigations at the ancient city of Meroe were carried out by John Garstang and the University of Liverpool from 1909 onwards. This report on more recent work by a joint Sudanese-Canadian project in 2000 and 2001, reflects greatly on the work of previous investigations at the site, especially those of Garstang, in providing assessments of their work as well as new observations. The season described here consisted of museum research in Khartoum and Toronto as well as fieldwork and investigations at Amun Temple M260, the largest temple in the Kushite kingdom and the largest at Meroe, Mound M712, as well as observations in and around the Royal City. A report on pottery and small finds is given, as well as a catalogue of objects from Garstang's excavations held in museum collections.
