About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1913 as a supplement to The Tribes of Northern and Central Kordofán, this volume provides a study of the brands used by camel owners in the Kordofán region of central Sudan. Part one of the text contains the names of brands arranged in alphabetical order, with a note in each case of the tribal sections which most commonly use the brand as their distinctive mark. Part two contains a list of the chief camel-owning tribes of Kordofán and the desert lying between it and Dongola, naming, where possible, the different brands used by each section or subsection. The text is illustrated with examples of brands as they would appear on camels. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Sudanese culture and the development of anthropology.
