        Egyptians take Jebel Barkal and Kush | Rise of the Black Pharaohs

        Watch the Egyptians take Kush to eliminate the kingdom's growing threat and to gain direct access to gold. The Kingdom of Kush included Jebel Barkal, a sacred mountain that symbolized creation and fertility. The Egyptians associated the mountain's spiral-like pinnacle with a cobra, and therefore a king, which inspired them to claim the butte as the birth place of their god of gods. Jebel Barkal became one of the most sacred sites of the Egyptian empire.
