Beginning in the late 1890s, Wallis Budge (1857–1934), was commissioned by the British Museum to conduct excavations and investigations at a series of sites in the Sudan. Volume I concentrates on an account of these activities, which took the form of four visits, between 1897 and 1905. Sites covered include temples, pyramids, forts, and cemeteries. Budge explains their locations, positioning, types of archaeological relics and treasures that they contain, and much more. There is extensive coverage of the Pyramid-fields at Nuri, Kurru, Zuma, Tankasi, Gebel Barkal, and others. The history of the area is told alongside a travelogue of Budge's explorations, which includes observations of modes of transport, the lay of the land, and the manners and customs of the native inhabitants. The volume concludes with a chapter about the robberies of royal Egyptian tombs. Volume II provides a history of Sudan beginning  with an account of the raid of Seneferu, the first king of fourth dynasty Egypt, and it concludes with events that took place in the early 20th century. Chapters are dedicated to the kingdom of Piankhi, the Ptolemaic period, the rise of Christianity, the rule of Muhammad, the role of gold in determining Sudan's course in history, and the British in contemporary Sudan.
