THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THREE ROCK ART SITES OF NORTHWESTERN TIGRAY, ETHIOPIA. [Abstract ID: 0102-01]
This article presents the unpublished result of the archaeological reconnaissance carried out in early 2000s in what are now the districts of Tselemti and Tahtay Koraro in the Northwestern Tigray Administrative Zone that resulted with the discovery of three rock-art sites dating to between about 3000-2000 BP. The paintings that portray scenes of domestication of cattle, sheep, goat and fighting can be categorized into the two conventional phases of the Ethiopia-Arabian Styles and provide evidence of contacts between the populations of the Nile Valley with those of Northern Horn (Eritrea and Northern Ethiopia) in the aforementioned period.
