The article reports that exhibition, to celebrate the Sudan National Museum's centenary, is being staged at the British Museum in London. It informs that the ancient sites of Sudan are home to some of the great monuments of Africa, and, long ago, it was the most powerful state in the Nile Valley, which briefly overwhelmed the Egypt of the Pharaohs. Using the fruits of recent archaeological research, this major exhibition leads the visitor through the fascinating history of the country from the early Stone Age to the 19th century AD, including the medieval Christian and the Islamic periods.
