Abstract

Radiocarbon Accelerator (AMS) dates from Qaṣr Ibrîm demonstrate that camels were present in Nubia in the early first millennium BC. Other early evidence for the camel in the Nile Valley is reviewed, and the significance of the Qaṣr Ibrîm finds for the cultural history of Nubia is discussed.
