Center, the black Nubian Pharaoh Shabako, circa 710 BC., and right, the last Nubian pharaoh Taharka, who ruled Egypt from 690 to 664 BC. He was the son of Piye, the Nubian king who had conquered Egypt in 760 BC. The last white Egyptians had vanished prior to 800 BC, physically integrated into the mass of Nubian and Semitic peoples who had come to dominate that land.

The archaeological site of Tombos is a New Kingdom period colony in Nubia (present-day Sudan). The settlement had an interesting history, to say the least. Tombos had a cosmopolitan population made up of local Nubians who were militarily occupied by the Egyptians during the New Kingdom. The population of Nubians eventually evicted the Egyptians, and established the Napatan Dynasty who themselves ruled Egypt as the 25th dynasty of the Third Intermediate Period.
