  10. 10. Legends/ Myths <ul><li>Myth of Nubia: </li></ul><ul><li>In the ongoing attempt to minimize the African involvement in such regions, even the inhabitants of Nubia sometimes fall prey to the Mediterranean Race Myth. When this is not the case, Nubia is minimized within the Nile valley as a purely Egyptian cultural invention. This has been the case so much so that some researchers have come to call Nubia, &quot;the other Nile Valley kingdom.&quot; Often the myth portrays Egyptians as &quot;superior whites&quot; ruling over the more &quot;primitive Blacks&quot; to the south. In reality however, while Nubia and Egypt did war with each other, there were more years of peace than battle. These conflicts were usually territorial or economic and never racially motivated as certain Egyptians and Nubians obviously shared similar physical features. The victors were more often the larger kingdom of the Egyptians but sometimes the Nubians as well. </li></ul>
