Soba was the `rich and prosperous' capital of the Medieval Kingdom of Alwa in Central Sudan. Situated on the Blue Nile, some 20 km above Khartoum, its remains today are no more than a heap of mounds. This report records the results of survey and excavation between 1981 and 1986, and provides detailed description of the buildings located, as well as sections by specialists on the pottery, small finds, textiles, glass, inscriptions and botanical remains.
