This handbook presents a comprehensive survey of the textual archaeological and art historical evidence for this Middle Nile Region - Kingdom of Kush. Basing itself upon the evidence and scholarly literature, this work discusses the emergence of the native state of Kush (after the Pharaonic domination in the 11th century BC), the rule of the Kings of Kush in Egpyt (c. 760-656 BC) and the intellectual foundations and political history of the Kingdom in the Napatan (7th and 3rd centuries BC) and Meroitic (3rd century BC - 4th century) periods.
