Abstract: Part 1: In the first part of the talk I will give the basic facts on string theory D-branes and supergravity black branes.
Part 2: In the second part of the talk, I will present explicit type II string constructions of backgrounds containing warped and squashed anti de Sitter spaces. These are obtained via T duality from brane intersections. I'll also discuss their supersymmetry properties and some special limits.
