African World History - The Save Nubia Project

 For  many years we have been told that Africans have made no significant contributions to the history of mans civilization and that Egypt although on the continent was developed by people from outside of Africa. The heritage sites of Sudan disprove this claim and they are at present at risk of being lost due to the activity of dam building. Please make yourself aware of what is happening in this part of Africa and involve yourself in whatever way you can in the preservation of our heritage.

"5000 years of African history will be lost!"

The mission of the Save Nubia Project (SNP) is to help raise national and international awareness about the pending flooding of the central areas of the ancient Kushite and Nubian civilizations in the Sudan. There are a series of dams (from the 2nd through 5th cataracts) scheduled for construction, each of which will cause the Nile River to back up and create a reservoir and flood countless ancient archaeological sites and displace well over 100,000 local Sudanese people. Thus, the Save Nubia Project’s task is to document that the dam construction areas in northern and central Sudan are valuable World Heritage Sites that are in danger of being destroyed, and should be preserved.
