Ethiopia is a land of plenty with a long and noble history giving rise to ethnic, linguistic and cultural diversity. It is the only African country never to have been colonised. It has more than 80 unique rich ethnic, cultural and linguistic groups.
Ethiopia is renowned for its distinctive Christian tradition and association with the Ark of the Covenant. It offers the most dramatic scenery of unsurpassed grandeur (i.e. Simien Mountains National Park), unique rock-hewn churches, the spectacular Blue Nile Falls, the Great Rift Valley, the Danakil Depression, imperial castles, monuments of an ancient civilisation linked with the legend of the Queen of Sheba.
Ethiopian Treasures' overall aim is to provide readers the many varied aspects of Ethiopia. It will, I hope, be a great help to school/college students and travellers, and by using this site readers can either begin to learn and discover Ethiopia, or enhance their knowledge of it.
Ethiopian Treasures also provides an educational web directory called Subject Finder (www.subjectfinder.com) which allows access to high-quality web resources for academics, teachers, lectures, students, researchers and the general public categorised by subject areas across all disciplines. It includes educational information, research resources, tutorials, learning and teaching materials.
