The Kerma cultures are studied since many decades. At the end of the 19th century, the American archaeologist, George Reisner thought that the large monument in the center of the image corresponded to the remains of an Egyptian foreign ground palace. We know today that it is the principal temple of an indigenous city which extends around the monument over one period ranging between 2350 and 1550 before our era.
