Archeological Tour

Ethiopia is well known for its human fossils, especially the world famous Lucy (or Dinknesh in Ethiopia) language. The newer discoveries extend Ethiopia’s fossil record further back in time, and include the 4.4 million-years-old Arditpithecus ramidus, the 5.7 million –year-old Arditpithecus kadabba, and Selam the 3.3 million year old ‘first child”. Ethiopia is the only country in the world that is endowed with substantial fossil remains that span the entire timeline of human evolution, from the 10million year old Choroapithecus, a possible ape relative of humans, to Homo sapiens idaltu, the 160,000-year old earliest ‘modern human’ fossil.
