Sabu

Sabu is Sudan's largest rock art site. It is situated at the downstream end of the Third Cataract, on the east bank of the Nile. Reportedly, Sabu comprises more than 1600 drawings from different periods, spanning more than 6000 years from late prehistory to recent times. Images include wild and domesticated animals, humans as well as religious signs and symbols. There are also some New Kingdom rock inscriptions. The site is still awaiting detailed recording.
