dc.description.abstract Qasr Wad Nimeiri is located about 19km south of New Dongola (Dongola el-Ordi) and 470km north of Khartoum (19º 01.322’ N, 30º 27.723’ E). It is bordered by Sortod village to the north and Gharb Labab to the south. The area is marked on maps as Khannaq, as the low sandstone cliff which to the north is separated from the Nile by the broad plain of Dongola, here reaches the Nile and forms a bottle neck (khanaq) which must be traversed by travellers passing along the west bank (Crawford 1951, 32). The site occupies an area more than 2km in length which is divided by a road into two sections. The eastern section includes the fort and the settlements to the north, west and south, while the western part is occupied by a huge cemetery. When Cailliaud passed the village in 1821 it lay in ruins (Cailliaud 1821, 11). en_US
