Archeological Areas Of Axum

Besides the impressive Stele field and various churches, Axum features a few understated archeological sites to visit.

Come on down to a tomb or two.

The building ability at some of the sites is impressive. Who needs mortar? OK, maybe some cement, but check out the intricate stepping of this wall and the nice stone corners.

The palace of the Queen of Sheba, 55 rooms strong. And a sewer system!

Sublime fig tree at the palace.
