Ceramics can portray different kinds of internal cultures, from the poor to the rich in society, and can also portray outside influences on a host culture. This session addresses various aspects of the role of ceramics in the transmission of Nubian culture and in the different Nubian kingdoms. The first paper analyses the role of trade in the early period of Makuria through ceramics. Following is a paper that seeks to understand the culture of the kingdom of Alwa through the ceramic evidence.
