Abstract

Was Lower Nubia inhabited during the Old Kingdom? Since G. A. Reisner's hypothetical 'B Group' was discounted, the archaeological sources seem to have contradicted the Egyptian texts, which give the impression of an area which was populated, if not prosperous. Examination of recent finds, however, suggests the existence of a Nubian population between Aniba and the Second Cataract, and the greater part of the Nubian pottery discovered on the Old Kingdom site at Buhen may provide the most convincing evidence for this.
