Description
History, adventure and travelogue combine as Simon Reeve explores three of the world's major rivers: the Nile, Yangtze and Ganges.
When people think of a culture along the Nile in ancient times, they just think of ancient Egypt, but we're in Sudan. There was a major ancient civilization here. Urban, literate, powerful kings that controlled a vast empire in the eighth century, bigger than any empire that had ever been on the Nile before.
