Mouweis, the development of a city in the island of Meroe
Mouweis, major site of the Meroitic Empire, is privileged because no excavation had ever been undertaken on this site before the excavations of the Louvre started in 2007.
In order to locate Mouweis in relation to the river during the Antiquity, research is being carried out on the ancient environment. Its relation to the river thus raises the question of the links of the other cities of the same model in the empire of Meroe especially in the 1st century BC and the 1st AD, great time of construction in the region of Meroe.
This site, from a village built in the 4th century BC, became a city dedicated to the power in place in the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD with its temples and palace. When they were abandoned in the 2nd and 5th centuries AD, Mouweis will become a production area for ceramics and metal objects in particular. Although reused until modern times, the Meroitic site of Mouweis retains a stratigraphy and very well preserved structures that have given us a part of its history.
