Place names in Nubia had only received limited attention until the publication of the fourth volume of Dotawo. The need for such studies guided the decision to dedicate this volume to Nubian toponyms and place naming in Nubia. The geographical framework of the volume encompasses both Nubia as the Middle Nile region, as well as the historical Nubia identified generally with the territory of North Sudan. The contents of this volume embrace a wide time frame (from Pharaonic times until today) and consist of contributions from scholars active in diverse fields of Nubian Studies (e.g., philology, linguistics, history, archaeology). Place Names and Place Naming in Nubia has the ambition of opening a series of toponymical surveys that may appear in the future through Dotawo or other venues under the title: Notes on Medieval Nubian Topography.
