But it was his grandson, Thutmose I, who completed the conquest of Kerma itself between 1530 and 1520 BCE, and his great grandson Thutmose III who consolidated Egyptian hegemony and influence in Palestine and Syria.
Kushites contributed to civilization through their art, such as painted pottery. They also introduced an alphabet based on the Egyptian hieroglyphic writing system, and engaged in iron metallurgy, which exists to this day.
