Fashioning Sudan is developing the archaeology of dress practices as a holistic method to reconstruct diverse narratives of identity along the ancient Middle Nile valley. The project investigates remains of garments made of textile and animal skin, the artefacts that rest closest to the human body and at the crossroads between the individual, technology, and social praxis.

Piecing together clothing assemblages and body perceptions through archaeological and historical sources, the team of Fashioning Sudan will retrace the development of dress practices from the Bronze Age to the medieval period (from c. 2500 BCE to 1500 CE) across the vast territory of modern Sudan and Nubia.
