It was a shame when they flooded the dam. It killed so many of my people. Some say it was intentional, but we will not get into that right now.

Hello,

What was the toll? Nubians were relocated before the 2nd dam, right?

Do you know if the 1st to 3rd Cataract Nile banks were fertile farmland before the first dam was built?

The cataract Nile between the 1st and 3rd was not farmland at all. Egypt called the southern desert,'Land of the Bow' and south of the 3rd cataract was called 'Kush'.
