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.
