Mouweis – The development of a city in the island of Meroe

Dr. Marie Millet

Mouweis, major site of the Meroitic Empire, is privileged because no excavation had ever been undertaken on this site before the excavations of the Louvre started in 2007. The site, from a village built in the 4th century BC, became a city dedicated to the power in place in the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD with its temples and palace. When they were abandoned in the 2nd and 5th centuries AD, Mouweis will become a production area for ceramics and metal objects in particular.
