Description

Sheikan Museum in El Obeid is a well-hidden jewel. The range of artefacts is wide and representative of both the colonial occupiers, as represented by the doomed Hicks Expeditionary Force, and the ansarwho defeated them at Sheikan in November 1883. From the Mahdi’s own razor (donated by the son of the Mahdi’s barber) to a wide range of weaponry, clothing and banners, complemented by photographs of several key participants on both sides of the conflict.
