The dawn of Ethiopia, which seems dark to us will be changed. Teacher Solomon’s 2015 year messages. Ethiopia has one of the richest histories in Africa. It is mentioned in the Bible. The area now known as Ethiopia is thought by many scholars to be the region where early Homo sapiens first emerged in the middle Palaeolithic period about 150 – 200,000 years ago. The oldest hominid fossils ever discovered were found in Ethiopia in 1994 and date from 4.2m years ago and are known as “Ardi” (Ardipithecus ramidus). The more well-known fossil remains of “Lucy” (Australopithecus afarensis) date from 3.2 m years ago and was discovered in 1974.
The oldest stone tools ever discovered anywhere in the world were found in 2010 and dated 3 m years old. Fossilized animal bones with stone tool-inflicted marks have also been found in Ethiopia dating from 3.4 m years ago. Ethiopia is believed by many scholars to be the ‘Land of Punt’ described by Egyptian chroniclers as a trading partner from over 5,000 years ago. Myrrh, ivory, animal skins, and gold were imported from Punt. This trade followed routes along the Nile and the Red Sea coast. The kingdom of D’mt with its capital at Yeha was the first kingdom known to have existed and dates from around the 10th century BCE (equivalent to BC, Before the Common/Current Era). A Sabean-style temple was built there around 800 BCE and is the oldest standing structure in sub-Saharan Africa. Scholars associate Sabean culture with the area that is modern-day Yemen.
