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.

    J’aime assez les pompoms girls japoniaises (non ce n’est pas une erruer de frappe) (alors que le erruer en est une)(mais je la laisse) mais acré bon sang d’vin diou, pourquoi y’a un gnome au milieu ? Par contre la première vidéo me laisse& perplexe& et un peu nauséeuse. J’ai un peu envie d’une vidéo de chatons kikinous et d’une bouteille de vodka-gruyère pour faire passer. Toussuite-toussuite.
