This excellent presentation deals with the brief conflict between Ancient Rome and the Kingdom of Kush in Nubia. As the Roman Republic transitioned into the Empire and as the Roman Civil War broke out after the awaited failure of the Second Triumvirate, Egypt became a battlefield that quickly fell to who would be eventually known as Augustus Caesar (Octavian.)

Once the Civil War ended Rome looked South to a Kingdom that no longer had a buffer state to separate them and a brief war would ensue over land and material gain in a conflict known to many as the Meroitic War in which a warrior Queen known as Amanirenas
would fight to ensure the independence of her people at all costs even if the cost included those she held most dear.

This work was made possible by Mansa Myrie who is truly one of the most knowledgeable people I will ever know when it comes to the history of Africa as we know it today and the variety of peoples whose stories are etched across its domain.
