Photographer's Note

The Royal Cemetery was the Royal Necropolis of kings of Meroe between 3rd c. BC to 3rd c. CE. Today these pyramids are easily accessible from Khartoum (120 miles, tarmac road) and quite often visited. This is the biggest, and imho the most attractive pyramid site in Sudan.
This is so called the Southern Cemetery on the photograph. The footprints on the sand are mine :-).
