      Deffufa(Kerma -Sudan) A monumental brick structure represented the principal religious buildung in Kerma (The Capital of Kush - the great Nubian Kingdom) Christian Nubia " introduction of christianity into Nubia marked a break in many ancient traditions. the most far-reaching change was the seperation of the institutions of church and state. Nubia (/ ˈ n uː b i ə, ˈ n j uː-/) is a region along the Nile river encompassing the area between the first cataract of the Nile (just south of Aswan in southern Egypt) and the confluence of the blue and white Niles (south of Khartoum in central Sudan) or, more strictly, Al Dabbah. It was the seat of one of the earliest civilizations of ancient Africa, as the Kerma culture lasted from.

        Kerma (now known as Dukki Gel, a Nubian term which can be roughly translated as “red mound”wink was the capital city of the Kingdom of Kerma, which was located in present day Sudan. The Kerma site has been confirmed by archaeology to be at least 9, years old. Around BC, a cultural tradition began around Kerma. Nubia and the Noba people. When discussing the civilisations of the Nile Valley, many histories focus almost exclusively on the role of Egypt. But this approach ignores the emergence further south on the Nile of the kingdom known to the Egyptians as Kush, in the region called Nubia - the area now covered by southern Egypt and Northern Sudan.

        Kerma: The First Kingdom of Kush. The first Kingdom of Kush, also known as Kerma, is one of if not the oldest African states outside of Egypt. It developed around the settlement of Kerma (just above the third cataract on the Nile, in Upper Nubia). Kerma arose around B.C. (during the Egyptian Old Kingdom), and had become the capital of the Kush Kingdom by B.C.   This is an area that extends from northern Sudan to southern Kemet. In some literature it was referred to as ancient Ethiopia, or as in the Bible, Kush. Today, it is called Ta-Seti. On 1 March , The New York Times carried an article on its front page, written by Boyce Rensberger, with the headline: "Nubian Monarchy Called Oldest".

The Kingdom of Kush was already in existence during the time of Egypt’s Old and Middle Kingdoms (ca. B.C. – BC). During this period, it was based around the settlement of Kerma, just above the Third Cataract of the Nile, in Upper Nubia. It was, however, only during the Second Intermediate Period that the Kingdom of Kush rose to power.

This kingdom has been regarded as the first Nubian state, and its capital, Kerma, is today an important archaeological site. The fall of the kingdom of Christian Nubia occurred in the early s resulting in full Islamization and reunification with Egypt under the Ottoman Empire, the Muhammad Ali dynasty, and British colonial rule.

After the independence of Sudan from Egypt, Nubia and the Nubian people became divided between Southern Egypt and Northern Sudan. The Kushite Kingdom or Kerma society was a cultural group based in Sudanese Nubia and an active and dangerous adversary to the pharaohs of the Middle and New Kingdom Egypt.

The Kushite Kingdom was the first Nubian state, situated between the fourth and fifth cataracts of the Nile River in what is now Sudan, with waxing and waning power over the. Atum then gave birth to Shu, the first man on earth, and Tefnut, the first woman and Tefnu married and gave birth to Geb (the god of Earth) and Nut (god of the Skies).

Geb and Nut then were responsible for giving birth to the most important gods in Kush; Osiris (god of the pharaohs), Seth (god of devastation), Isis (god of motherhood), and Nephthys (protector of the dead). The Kingdom of Kush is probably the most famous civilization to emerge from Nubia.

Three Kushite kingdoms dominated Nubia for more than 3, years, with capitals in Kerma, Napata, and Meroë. Three Kushite kingdoms dominated Nubia for more than 3, years, with capitals in Kerma, Napata, and Meroë.

By BC (during the Old Kingdom period) the kingdom of Kerma has established its dominance over the North Sudan.
