In 2019, the SFDAS celebrated its fifty years of existence. A full week devoted to SFDAS and Sudanese heritage was held in September 2019 at the French Institute in Khartoum and at the National Museum of Sudan, these events being placed under the aegis of the French Embassy in Sudan. This week, made up of archaeological conferences given by the greatest specialists and former directors of the SFDAS, also saw an exhibition devoted to French archeology take place at the French Institute, around the work of Claude Iverné, associate member of the SFDAS.

A.J. Arkell excavated in 1944 near modern Khartoum a Mesolithic site, with the remains of a culture which he called ’Early Khartoum’. No traces of houses or huts were found but the remains excavated must belong to a settlement at least occasionally inhabited. Early Khartoum is a Mesolithic culture with some bone working and a microlithic stone industry. The use of pottery perhaps indicates contacts with Neolithic cultures. There was a limited use of wild grain. From the faunal remains it seems certain that these people lived by hunting and fishing; no domesticated animals were found.
