Research: Aksum: Yesterday and Today
Now it is time to take the knowledge we've gained from our excavation and write a report on Axum. We have learned about the geography, religion, culture, and economy of the ancient kingdom of Aksum. What is Aksum like today? A big change is the name, since the kingdom of Aksum adopted the name Ethiopia in the Fourth Century and is now the location of the country of Ethiopia. Is it different geographically, culturally, or economically?
