It may be as well to outline briefly here Aksumite historical development, and Aksum's position in the contemporary world, discussed in detail in later chapters Chs. Aksumite origins are still uncertain, but a strong South Arabian Sabaean influence in architecture, religion, and cultural features can be detected in the pre-Aksumite period from about the fifth century BC, and it is clear that contacts across the Red Sea were at one time very close Ch. A certain linguistic and religious continuity may be observed between the two ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM, though many features of Aksumite civilisation differ considerably from the earlier material.


For assistance with technical matters ranging from layout to publication I thank Sebastian Heath. Any remaining errors in this book are my own. Last but not least I thank Alden Young, through whom I first ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM of the Sudan Studies Association conference, and who encouraged me to present a paper there. Both were expansionist polities linked to the outside world through long-distance trade and have left rich records of their respective histories in the form of monuments and inscriptions. Aksum dominated the northern highlands of Ethiopia from at least the turn of the Common Era down to the seventh century, Kush the middle Nile Valley as far south as the lower Blue Nile from the early ninth century BCE to the ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM century CE.

Thanks to these inscriptions, as well as to references in Graeco-Roman literature and foreign imports that have survived in the ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM record, it is possible to reconstruct a fairly detailed history of how Aksum and Kush interacted with the outside world. Unfortunately there is relatively little evidence of Aksumite contact with Kush. No mention of Aksum has yet been found in Kushite inscriptions, and though we find references to Nubia and its peoples in inscriptions of the Aksumite kings Ousanas c.


Overall, however, Nubia was never as important to Aksum geopolitically as Arabia. By contrast, no full-scale occupation of Nubia was ever attempted by the Aksumites. Nevertheless, the fact that Aksum was victorious in its confrontations with Nubia in the fourth century provided fertile grounds for developing the political fiction of rule over Nubia, a political fiction maintained by later Aksumite kings. This is hardly reason to assume rigid geographical determinism, however, since Aksumite records of war with Nubia indicate quite clearly that the middle Nile Valley, though not as important to Aksum either politically ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM economically as South Arabia, was still by no means insignificant strategically to ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM Ethiopian kingdom.

It will be argued that the main cause for conflict between Kush and Aksum in the fourth century had less to do with political or economic rivalry at the highest level, than with the security of the frontier region that separated them. Following the fourth century we no longer have the benefit of such documentation of Aksumite-Nubian relations. Indeed there is no evidence at all ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM Aksumite relations with Nubia in the fifth century, after the fall of Kush.

In the sixth century it becomes possible to pick up the trail once more, since it is at that time that we find archaeological and literary evidence of contact between Aksum and the Nubian kingdom of Alodia. While this study makes no attempt to substantially rewrite the history of Aksumite-Nubian contact, it is hoped that it can at least clarify what we can and cannot say about relations between the two regions, as well as draw attention to the need for further archaeological research in the still understudied ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM between the Nile Valley and the Ethiopian Highlands.

Chapter 2 focuses on the period between the first and third centuries CE and argues that, as far as long-distance trade is concerned, the economies of Kush and Aksum operated not very differently but independently of each other. Yet, not until the early sixteenth century, with the first comprehensive written description made by ACTION ACT MONTANA E AXUM Alvares in particularly focused on human settlements, climate, rivers, routes, society and natural resources were the main physiographic elements of the Adwa region and of the Ethiopian Highlands described Alvares ; Ross a, b. Although some of these stages seem to have affected the area of Axum and the Tigray province in particular, other stages show a good regional correlation not only with palaeoenvironmental proxy data from different areas within Ethiopia, but also from other eastern and north-eastern African regions. The oldest preserved stability phase is represented by the buried Vertisol at the Adwa site unit 3;Machado et al.

This date is consistent with a Vertisol described bySemmel in the Ethiopian Butzer preceded by a period of 35 years with frequent floods Said An increase in sediment yield from the slopes into the valleys is shown in a colluvial unit unit 4 of the Adwa Site Machado et al.
