Ancient Egypt and Nubia have a long history of interaction that led to both cultural and biological entanglements. Cultural and political boundaries shifted over time, with Egypt absorbing parts of its southern neighbor into an eventually far-reaching empire but also with independent Nubian kingdoms dominating Egypt at different periods, at one point with its kings ruling as Pharaohs. This chapter examines the influences that flowed back and forth between Egyptian colonizers and indigenous Nubians, mapping the flows and intensity of cultural and biological exchanges diachronically through the Cross-Cultural Interaction Model, with the addition of side-by-side comparisons that link to the circular diagrams. This model can allow us to take into account the complex nature of interactions between Egyptians and Nubians and the multifaceted role that individual agency played in creating complex outcomes that simultaneously reflect multiple groups with varied interests.
