The Sudan, the largest country in Africa, has Avery vast area which extends from Egypt in the north to Uganda in the south, entoured by ten countries. These vast territories measures about 1,000,000sq.miles, with different ethnic groups. Sudan with its geographical position as heart of Africa, became a zone of interaction between the Hamitic Arabs and the Negro Africans. This unique blending of the different element resulted in Sudan’s unique cultures. The different geographical zones and the natural resources of the country facilitated agricultural and animal husbandry and commercial activities through its ancient trade routes. From the archaeological point of view, large areas of its vast territories are still “Tera incognito” they are not yet fully explored, in spite of the great efforts of various academic and authorized institutes (2). (Khidir Asia,1994).
