Archaeologists In Ethiopia Uncover Ancient City In Harlaa

A forgotten city thought to date back as far as the 10th century AD has been uncovered by a team of archaeologists in eastern Ethiopia.

Artefacts from Egypt, India and China have been found in the city in the Harlaa region.

The archaeologists also uncovered a 12th Century mosque which is similar to those found in Tanzania and Somaliland.

Archaeologists says this proves historic connections between different Islamic communities in Africa.

“This discovery revolutionises our understanding of trade in an archaeologically neglected part of Ethiopia. What we have found shows this area was the centre of trade in that region,” lead archaeologist Professor Timothy Insoll from the University of Exeter said.

The team also found jewellery and other artefacts from Madagascar, the Maldives, Yemen and China.

    Some have said it's a sense that's difficult to describe, and I guess it is. 2 hasn’t been turned on for eight months, it may come back if we turn it on. Just forget about various levels of harmony, if you are into leather, you can personalize your site to meet the sort of lovers you would like [url="http://asiatischenuttenhamburg.lessi.icu"]http://asiatischenuttenhamburg.lessi.icu[/url] however that does not essentially imply on-line relationship is simple.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Ie.

    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with
    browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
    Thanks
