"Faithful Followers" Dig Location

[Crossposted from forkni-l. Backdated. In reply to a question on the episode containing the flashback dig in sight of a pyramid.]

That episode is definitely season two's "Faithful Followers," and Lacroix's friend is named Thomas.  I believe the dialogue locates them near Khartoum, which is presently in Sudan (not Egypt).  I don't know what country technically held it c.1921-1924 for the flashbacks, however.

Apart from being under British colonial rule, does anyone know anything more about the probable circumstances around Khartoum at that time?
