Archaeology in Ethiopia

Information about archaeology in Ethiopia.

Archaeology is the science that studies human cultures through the recovery, documentation, analysis, and interpretation of material remains and environmental data, including architecture, artifacts, features, biofacts, and landscapes. Although the goals of archaeology vary, the overarching aim is simply to better understand mankind.

The World Heritage List includes properties forming part of the cultural and natural heritage that the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value. Many of these archaeological sites, such as Machu Picchu in Peru and the Pyramid Fields of Egypt, are well-established tourist destinations. It's a good starting point for those seeking out examples of archaeology in Ethiopia.

Please submit your thoughts on World Heritage sites in Ethiopia or active archaeology dig sites that can be found in Ethiopia. If possible, please explain how a traveler can participate in or observe an excavation in progress.
