We had the privilege of seeing many of the ruins of the ancient Kingdom of Kush, including the Pyramids of the Kingdom's ancient capital, Meroe, and others in Nubia. The Kingdom of Kush dates back to 2,500 BC and lasted until around 600 AD. The Kushite Pharoah, Piankhi, united the entire Nile Valley from the Delta (in modern-day Egypt) to the city of Napata (in modern-day Sudan). There are more Pyramids in Sudan than there are in Egypt.
