    4,718 views 2 years ago
    Ethiopia’s history stretches back to before recorded time to an age when our first ancestors walked the earth. Here you can see fossils tracing the origin of humankind including our oldest forebears – the 3.2 million year old ‘Lucy’.

    This land abounds in mysteries - the Queen of Sheba, the resting place of the biblical Ark of the Covenant - and in the extraordinary achievements of ancient civilizations - Aksum, the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, the castles of Gondar, the colourful and holy Islamic city of Harar, all of them World Heritage Sites.

    Make time to visit Ethiopia, and discover for yourself the origins of so much history and culture - still vibrantly alive in a landscape of dramatic beauty. Come and you will witness how Ethiopia is original in many ways.
