Nigritian

African culture thought by some Africanists to be a relic of an older culture with both Egyptian and Indian elements. This older, hypothetical culture is sometimes called Old Sudanese, and is thought to be constituted by people with variable genetic attributes generally labeled as Negroid, and that occupied a common culture area from the upper Nile to the sources of the Niger River.
