Prospections archéologiques dans la région de Makale et les contreforts orientaux du Tigray

Abstract : Since the 1970s, the so-called “pre-Aksumite” civilisation and Aksum stand in area under discussion since the development of culture in the Ethiopian highlands appears to be, even now, the subject of much debate. What role did Aksum play, when did it emerge to prominence, and what were its relations with the other societies and cultures? And above all, is there any connection between both “pre-Aksumite” and Aksumite civilisations? One of the aims of a short visit in Tigrai region was a general survey of “Pre-Aksumite” and Aksumite sites (Adwa and around, as well as Hawzen, and on the eastern side, the region of Atsbi-Deraʾ and the one of Medri Senafe), in order to estimate the importance of the archaeological evidence. This preliminary survey concentrated on documenting several remains in these regions, some of them first surveyed by Hiluf Berhe (Aksum) and the Tourism and Culture Commission of Tigrai Regional State (TCCTRS, Mekele).
