Abstract : The huge Napatan and Meroitic necropolis in Sedeinga covers an overall area of roughly 650 x 450m. From west to east, it lies between a long irregular white quartz outcrop and the main track passing alongside the Temple of Queen Tiyi. An upper track, part of the famous Darb al-Arba’in used by camel herds coming from Darfur to Egypt, cuts the site along its length. From north to south, two dry wadis divide it into three sectors numbered I, II, III. A small hill situated in the north-western part of the site (Sector West) was the burial place of local princes.
