Geographically isolated, the Nuba Mountains served as a refuge for a variety of African peoples throughout the ages. This is reflected in the amazing linguistic and cultural diversity found in the area. Systematic research has the potential to reveal much about the early history, as well as elaborate upon periods of important historical change only known from fragmentary textual and oral accounts.
