Archaeological Survey in Tigray, March 2018

In March 2018, Amélie Chekroun, Bertrand Hirsch and Julien Loiseau surveyed the area of Igre Hariba (Tigray, Ethiopia). This short mission made it possible to identify the exact location of Bilet, the Muslim cemetery from which a dozen of Arabic stelae have been found during the 20th Century, and to better understand its archaeological context. The mission offered also the opportunity to find new Arabic stelae from the 11th-12th Centuries.
