2019 and 2020 saw the first two seasons of excavations of the Brown-Swansea Uronarti Regional Archaeological Project in the Sudan. The project investigates the imposing fortress built by Senwosret III close to the Semna Border - just one of two major Middle Kingdom monuments in this region to have survived the flooding of Lower Nubia following the completion of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s. The talk will introduce the project, its background, results to date and future prospects.
