Ancient Kush

Teaching Packs based on the Mollet Learning Academy (MLA) approach to learning – sample from a lesson

Kush – Africa’s oldest interior civilization

The ancient civilization of Kush is often a neglected area of the ancient civilization curriculum. 

However, if students are to have a balanced view of the development of civilizations throughout the world, then they need to learn about this ancient civilization of the interior of Africa.

As Kush possessed all the features of a major civilization it should take its place alongside the other major civilizations of the ancient world.

Kush was not simply an extension of its northern neighbor Egypt, but a civilization in its own right, with a distinct and separate culture.

Influenced by Egypt on some occasions and influencing Egypt on others, Kush nevertheless followed a unique path of development.

With this in mind Waldorf Education Resources has produced a teaching pack with three SubUnits on Kush, starting with the Kerma culture and taking students through to the destruction of Meroe by the king of Axum.

Unit 4 Kush 
SubUnit 1: Historical & Geographical Background
SubUnit 2: Kush: The Kerma Period
SubUnit 3: Kush: Napatan/Meroitic Period 
(Review exercises included in each SubUnit)

Each SubUnit (not Unit) costs $19.95 (This price includes permission to photocopy)

Since advent of social media all material is now in pdf format (no postage or processing fee). Physical copies (postage/processing fees apply) can be provided at additional cost – please contact MLA.
Each SubUnit (not Unit) costs USA $19.95
  NZ $24.95
