Abstract
The study of prehistoric archaeology in the Sudan led to the fact that the interaction of man with the environment and the landscape had played a great role in the development of his culture. This is true particularly in the Middle Nile region, where archaeological studies revealed Cultures of wide links, between the Nile and the eastern desert. In the archaeological research of the Island of Meroe, however the areas far away from the Nile were less lucky in Pre historical studies, in particular the AlBatin plain, which is located in the Eastern part of old Mereo, between the River Nile and Atbara River. This research includes the result of the archaeological survey and test excavations carried out by the writer during the period from (April 2009 – October 2010) directed by his supervisor. The data collected in the field work was studied in comparison from the Nile –sites and Butana –sites of the same period. The major archaeological finds of the field work in AlBatin plain are settlements from the Mesolithic period and the Neolithic period. The Neolithic sites ar generally earlier in date from the Nile sites, Esour and Kadada, but contemporary with shaqadud site. Thus forming a continuation between the Butana sites and the Nile sites. That means AlBatin Plain and Butana plain and the Nile (we may call Shendi reach) is a representation of a cultural Horizon of late prehistory. However there are some markered differences in the archaeological material from these Three Regions in quality and quantity and diversity. The study of AlBatin materials demonstrates that the environment and the diversified economic activities have established a continuity of settlement from Prehistoric to the Medieval period
