Nubia

These interviews were undertaken as part of a project to explore the scope of Nubian identity and cultural heritage and were filmed in Southern Egypt and Northern Sudan in the winter of 2010. The interviewees include members of the Nubian community, museum curators and directors and aim to give people an impression of how Nubian people identify themselves and how museums present Nubian, Sudanese and Ancient Egyptian history. The interviews were undertaken by Sally-Ann Ashton, Senior Assistant Keeper in the Department of Antiquities at the Fitzwilliam Museum and were filmed by Andrew Crowe.

Thanks are due to all of those who agreed to be filmed and to the Egyptian and Sudanese Antiquities Services who facilitated the project.
