Sudanese Cultural Heritage Sites

This booklet is about the Sudanese Heritage, a cultural part of it. In September-December of 2015, the National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums (NCAM) of the Sudanese Ministry of Tourism, Antiquities and Wildlife, National Commission for Education, Science and Culture, and UNESCO Khartoum office organized a set of expert consultations to review the Sudanese list of monuments, buildings, archaeological places, and other landmarks with outstanding cultural value, which the country recognizes as of being on a level of requirements of the World Heritage Center of UNESCO (WHC). Due to this effort the list of Sudanese Heritage had been extended by four items, and, together with two already nominated as World Heritage Sites (Jebel Barkal and Meroe Island), it currently consists of nine items.
