The recent concepts using theories of ‘cultural entanglement’ are important starting points, but still not the solution to reconstruct the actual cultural milieu of the Nile Valley in the New Kingdom due to the current elite and centre bias. However, based on the latest results, we are now able to develop a novel method tackling the full complexity of cultural dynamics in the Middle Nile. The ERC project DiverseNile is tacking a new approach and investigates internal cultural factors, individual choices and careers, and related decisions of different groups of Nubians and Egyptian settlers. The paper will give an overview of the project and its case study in the Middle Nile, the Attab to Ferka region.
