Eons ago humankind emerged from the vast and beautiful East African landscape. Civilizations rose and played vital roles both domestically and on the world stage. The Aksumite Empire was one such global player, serving as a vital trade connection and important exporter of ivory in the Greco-Roman world. Today, over 90% of this fascinating area is still untouched by archaeologists, despite the richness that lays just below the surface.
This fascinating and complex field program will bring you closer to this world beneath the soil. You can be a part of The Shire Archaeological Project, a well established field program that works tirelessly to expose the Aksumite Kingdom’s rich pre-history and culture before the evidence is lost forever.
