Abstract

Moussawarat es-Soufra, located about 180 km northeast of the current Sudanese capital Khartoum, is a key site of the Meroitic period (c. 300 BC-350 AD). ). The main feature of the site is the Great Enclosure, a unique monumental complex whose function and history are still the subject of much debate, although intensive archaeological work has been undertaken on the structure for decades. The site contains other monuments such as smaller temples, profane buildings and vast artificial water reservoirs, the “hafirs”. This article therefore examines the explanatory approaches concerning the individual structures and the site as a whole.
