THE MEDJAY OF ANCIENT NUBIA
The Medjay represents the name Ancient Kemetians gave to a region in northern Sudan where an ancient people of Nubia inhabited. They became part of the Ancient Kemetian military as scouts and minor workers. During the Middle Kingdom “Medjay” no longer referred to the district of Medja, but to a tribe or clan of people. It is not known what happened to the district, but, after the First Intermediate Period, it and other districts in Nubia were no longer mentioned in the written record.
