Abstract : The Meroitic period on Sai Island is mainly represented by elements related to funeral activities, from which many objects have been selected for international exhibitions on Nubia. Nevertheless, these remains are still largely unknown, as publications on the subject are few and far between. Bearing these circumstances in mind, I decided to begin the first season in the field at cemetery 8-B-5.A. This necropolis, partially excavated in the past (between 1997 and 2004), apparently offered a perfect framework for the establishment of a regional profile, which could fit into the general cartography of funerary practices at that time.
