Published for "On the Southern Bank of the Blue Nile, a land between two worlds", organized by the Residence for Researchers and the Fundación General de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, held at Residence for Researchers Auditorium.

The archaeological work made by a team from Complutense University in collaboration with other Spanish and foreign Institutions on the Blue Nile southern bank, in the Southeast of Jartum, continued from there to the south to explore the Blue Nile in Ethiopia.

The archaeological importance of the Blue Nile is given by the fact that it was an important way of communication between the Sahara south plains and the Eastern Sahara highlands. In the middle of the Holocene period, the first African Shepherds started their way towards the South, pushed by the Sahara aridity to further extend their productive economy on the Northeast part of the country.
