“In the realm of Meroe: Muweis, a city under the sand”

( directed by Stan Neumann )

Camera Lucida / France Télévisions

This documentary takes us to the site of Muweis, excavated by the Louvre since 2007. It is a Meroitic city that spreads out on the banks of the Nile at the edge of the desert. Covered by sand, this city is a rare example of an expanded urban settlement and should reveal new aspects of Meroitic life.
