SUDAN & NUBIA

Colour plate XVII. El-Barga. Map of the Kerma region with the sites discovered during the survey. Mesolithic and Early Neolithic sites are located on the edge of the alluvial plain while the later occupations are located further west.

Colour plate XVIII.. El-Barga. Examples of Mesolithic burials where the body of the individual was inserted into a container made with perishable matters (matting, leather bag). The forced positioning of certain bones, notably those of the legs, confirms that the bodies were inserted into small size containers.

Colour plate XIX. El-Barga. Examples of jewellery discovered in the Neolithic burials. Right: burial of a child with a hippopotamus ivory bracelet and a necklace with bone and amazonite beads. Left: burial of a woman with ivory lip plugs found in their original position.
