The International El Kurru Project is a collaborative excavation project co-directed by Rachael J Dann (Associate Professor, Egyptian & Sudanese Archaeology) of the University of Copenhagen, Geoff Emberling (Research Scientist) of the Kelsey Museum, University of Michigan and Professor Abbas Sidahmed Mohammed Ali of the University of Dongola, Kareima. El Kurru is part of the UNESCO World Heritage site of “Gebel Barkal and the Sites of the Napatan Region”. It was the burial place and royal city of many of the earliest Napatan Kings and Queens, including a number of the 25th Dynasty Kings who conquered and ruled Egypt. The excavation aims to investigate the archaeological remains of the royal city and cemetery areas in their broader landscape context, and to undertake necessary conservation work. A further step is to make the site ready for presentation to the public. The Art, Archaeology and Sensory Knowledge project (AASK) is part of our interdisciplinary research, and has been running concurrently with the International Kurru Archaeological Project. This work was established in collaboration with Dr Helen Wickstead of Kingston University, London. The first artists Melanie Jackson and Florian Roithmay rcame to site in 2014.
