about

This well-illustrated book provides an up-to-date survey of a key period in the history of northern Ethiopia and south-central Eritrea, their development, florescence and eventual transformation into the so-called medieval civilisation of Christian Ethiopia. It considers how the region's literate communities arose and flourished during the last millennium BC, giving rise to the Aksumite civilisation whose achievements and intercontinental significance are increasingly recognised, and which formed an integral but often neglected component of the Christian world in Late Antiquity.
