The black pharaohs, as they were known, ruled over a mighty empire stretching along the Nile Valley 2,500 years ago.

A team of French and Swiss archaeologists working in the Nile Valley have uncovered ancient statues described as sculptural masterpieces in northern Sudan. The archaeologists from the University of Geneva discovered a pit full of large monuments and finely carved statues of the Nubian kings known as the black pharaohs.

The Swiss head of the archaeological expedition told the BBC that the find was of worldwide importance.

I do love history, but ancient civilisations are my real passion.
