The Horn of Africa contains some of the earliest archaeological evidence for human culture and skeletal remains, and the Ethiopian and Eritrean highlands and neighbouring regions embrace a rich (yet underappreciated) heritage, one of immense potential for those seeking to know more about human socio-cultural development. This first full-length study of the archaeology of this region stands to have immense impact on our understanding of 2.5 million years of human history.
