Standing stones in Ethiopia
There is an area in Ethiopia, the Soddo region, where there are about 150 prehistoric sites. The standing stones and the area near the village of Tiya were added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites as long ago as 1980.
There are 36 of these stones, most of them carved with symbols that have never been deciphered. The symbols are very different from those on other sites in the area. Nobody knows what ancient Ethiopian culture put them there, or precisely when.
