A new fieldwork season in Eritrea

New remains of giant mammals, Plant trunks and artifacts older than one million years

The Archaeological Heritage Research Branch (AHRB) of the Commission of Culture and Sports, in collaboration with the Spanish research institute of IPHES (Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution), has been conducting joint research activities at the Danakil Depression of Eritrea since 2012. Each year the project has been discovering interesting artifacts with the potential of ascribing the area as one of the most remarkable places in evolution research.
This year marks the 8th term field and laboratory study of the project, and AHRB, together with IPHES, is reporting the results of this year’s campaign.
