“We are now discovering other contemporary societies further south, societies which continued to develop through to the third millennium BC, ultimately to emerge as significant polities, which over the centuries were even to become powerful rivals to Egypt.” David Edwards, The Nubian Past, 2004, p.42

Drew University’s history of studying Ancient Egypt goes back to the 1970s with a study program in Egyptology. Today, courses in Art History and Archaeology continue this tradition with added expertise and library collections on Sudan, the southern neighbor of Egypt, which is equally rich in history and archaeology.

The Library Archives have set out to showcase its collections and welcome experts on Ancient Egypt and Sudan to participate in seminars or give lectures to a general audience.
