Kerma Museum

The Kerma Museum was inaugurated on January 19, 2008. It presents an overview of region’s archaeology from the first human settlements up to, but not including, the current period. (Kerma Museum)

The highlight of the Kerma Museum are seven black granite statues uncovered in a ditch at the nearby site of Dukki Gel in 2003 by an archaeological team headed by Charles Bonnet. Deliberately broken, but in an excellent state of preservation, in the central room of the Museum are displayed the entirely reassembled statues portraying the so called Nubian Black Pharaohs Taharqa, Tanwetamani, Senkamanisken, Anlamani, and Aspelta, who ruled Egypt in the 25th Dynasty.
