Sample text

Between 3400 and 3200 BCE, the most powerful of the small states may have been the Ta-Seti, actually located in the northern Nubian stretches of the Nile, just south of Egypt. The TaSeti kingdom, which extended as far south as the confluence of the Abbai and the Nile, claims to have conquered and ruled over Upper Egypt for a time. By the thirty-second century BCE, the power and wealth of Ta-Seti was in decline, and the balance of power had shifted to the rulers of Upper Egypt. Sometime around 3100 BCE, the Upper Egyptian rulers brought all of Egypt under one rule.

Political leadership was based on heredity. Kings assumed sacral, judicial, political, and military powers. Certain families were prominent in its political life. For example, the Magnid family ruled between the fifth and sixth century BCE. This was a period of state consolidation through increased control over conquered territories. In the fifth century BCE, the powers of the king declined and were progressively eclipsed by the rise of Siefets (judge and governor). This change was triggered by developments in Greece and Rome, where Siefets were prominent.

Rome ruled these areas through provincial governors called proconsuls—it laid waste to the region’s farmlands and encouraged Roman ex-servicemen to settle there. Roman senators and tax collecting companies benefited at the expense of Libyans, whose land they seized. Military conquest was slow because of Libyan resistance. Roman rule finally ended in the second century AD. Roman colonization was a purely urban phenomenon that had absolutely no impact on the Berber people in the rural areas—it lasted for four centuries (five in other areas), then the Vandals (of German origin) replaced the Romans.
