9 Sept- 9 Jan 2005. Using the fruit of recent archaeological research, this major exhibition at the British Museum leads the visitor through the fascinating history of Sudan from the early Stone Age to the 19th century AD, including the mediaeval Christian and the Islamic periods. Many of the exhibits have been lent by the Sudan national museum in Khartoum, some never before seen outside the country. The Sudanese collection in the galleries of the British Museum is among the most important and comprehensive outside Africa, allowing many insights into the countrys diversity of people and culture. To mark its long-term relationship with Sudan, the museum has planned a series of exhibitions, gallery highlights and events that explore Sudans past and present. Stunning ancient artefacts, fascinating material culture and the challenging work of contemporary artists all help to reveal the rich cultural and artistic heritage of Sudan. )
