An introductory course to Old Nubian

The IFAO, the PCMA and the University of Fayoum have joined forces to offer a complete introduction to the Old Nubian language, the written form of the language used by the inhabitants of the Middle Nile Valley during the Middle Ages. The course, both theoretical and practical, will be given by Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei, who is currently the best specialist in this language rarely studied in standard university curricula.
