The Nubians' historical area of settlement was between Aswan in Egypt
and Dongola in the Sudan, on which they developed several outstanding
civilizations, going back 5000 years (Emberling 2011 : 6). In the I 960s, the
majority of Nubians in Egypt and in Northern Sudan were forced to leave
their ancestral lands, when the construction of the Aswan High Dam began,
and when Old Nubia was consequently submerged. This shift in place caused
many changes in their traditional practices and their economies, which had
strong connections to their historical lands, and affected as well their cultural
identity (Hopkins and Mehanna 20I0: 5).
