The Rise Of Aksum – History Of Africa With Zeinab Badawi [Episode 5]



Zeinab Badawi travels to the rarely visited country of Eritrea and neighbouring Ethiopia to chart the rise of the kingdom of Aksum.

Described as one of the four greatest civilisations of the ancient world Zeinab examines archaeological remains in both countries dating back many hundreds of years before our common era.

She explains how the kings of Aksum grew rich and powerful from their control of Red Sea trade and how they were one of the first civilisations in the world that officially embraced Christianity in the fourth century. Also find out why the Queen of Sheba and the secret of the Ark of the Covenant are so fundamental to Ethiopia’s history.

    Hello Zaineb, The Axumites are Sabean Jews from Yemen who left Axum after the fall of the kingdom! They have nothing to do with the Tigrians you met there!! Majority of the Tigrians living in #Tigray now are descendants of slaves donated to Kush Kingdom after King Alexander collected them from Tikrit – Iraq (part of Persia then).

    I see the racisim here. When Badawi speaks there are no captions. When the locals speak English there are captions. That's racist. He was speaking perfect English by the way.

    The fact that Jesus Christ is African is well founded. This is what we are thought by our professors in schools of theology. This is not a political statement. Billy Graham for one agrees with this statement!

    Check your history you priest, it is not the Ethiopians that changed the face of Christ and Mary, but the white Europeans for the last 500 hundred after renaisance, the rebirth of the Romans coming back to Europe, AKA white people.

    It is believed that more remains of the Axumite Kingdome are on the Eritreans side, which is close to the sea. It is a matter of time, budget, and experts untill the underneath ancient towns are excavated.

    Who told you Axum is part of Eritrea? How much are got paid? Who are you after all to spoil the True History of Axumite Kingdom? You are telling the world a distorted story, made by the present Asmara régime. But, since your effort is baseless, and the World knows what is true about the issue you are talking, no one will give you an ear to listen to such a lie! Eritrea may be part of the Axumite Kingdom but not the Center of the History and civilization. You have to know that the Center of the Real History and Civilization is AXUM, and it was in TIGRAI and still now it is TIGRA. No one history is developed for no reason! In other words, AXUM has been the center (Capital City or sit of the Axumite kingdom) since the fourth century. Eritrea has become a state yesterday, in 1991. I think you are ill. My comment is about the True and Delicious History of Axum and Tigrai, swallow it and hope you will be fine!

    There is misunderstood with history Eritrea and Ethiopia have nothing connectivity with Axumit kingdom history.
    The Axumit kingdom history is belongs Tigrayan. that all you said are Tigray history .. Tigrayans are the first one to accept Christianity in Africa andTigrayans are the first one to accept Islamic in Africa. that all Ethiopian history is belongs to Tigrayan but world and Ethiopians or Eritreans pretend that as belong their history.

African History




11 Reasons Tp Prove That Africans Were in America 2000 years Before Colombus.
Let me take you on a journey through some of these fascinating pieces of evidence of African presence in America 2000 years before Columbus. Take them with a grain of salt if you have to, but I think they are worth some consideration.
1. Olmec Heads: The colossal stone heads created by the Olmec civilization in present-day Mexico, which date back to 1500 BCE to 400 BCE, feature distinctly African facial features. These heads feature facial features such as broad noses, full lips, and round faces that clearly resemble those of Africans more than the indigenous populations of the Americas. Tell me this is not a black man right there. The detailed and realistic nature of the Olmec heads suggests they were based on real individuals. It is no wonder not surprising that some researchers contend that these features indicate an African presence in pre-Columbian America.

2. African Artifacts in the Americas: Artifacts such as cotton from Africa and tobacco pipes found in pre-Columbian sites in South America have led some to speculate about transatlantic contact. In addition, metal artefacts with similar metallurgical techniques to those used in West Africa have been found in pre-Columbian American sites.

Before the next point kindly give us a like. I know to you it’s a simple click, but to us it means a lot.
3. Botanical Evidence: Certain plants like the bottle gourd and the sweet potato are thought to have originated in Africa and Asia but were present in pre-Columbian America, suggesting possible ancient transoceanic contact.

4. Linguistic Evidence: Some linguists claim to have found similarities between certain Native American languages and African languages. Some proponents argue that there are similarities between ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and symbols found in Mesoamerican writing systems, such as those of the Maya. The Mandinka word “makala,” meaning “rice,” is compared to the similar-sounding words in some Native American languages.

Dr. Clyde Winters points to shared vocabulary and phonetic similarities, such as the word “yu” in Mandinka meaning “to give” and a similar-sounding word in the Olmec language with the same meaning.
Leo Wiener, in his early 20th-century work “Africa and the Discovery of America,” cited examples such as the Wolof word “tem” (to cut) and its similarity to the Algonquian word “temagun” (an axe).

5. THOR HEYERDAHL’S RAFT EXPERIMENTS: The Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl demonstrated with his expeditions (Kon-Tiki and Ra) that it was possible to travel across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans using ancient boat-building techniques, suggesting that such voyages could have occurred in ancient times.

6. Ancient Maps: Some historical maps, such as the Piri Reis map, allegedly show parts of the American continent with a level of detail suggesting pre-Columbian exploration, potentially by African or other non-European civilizations.

7. Skull Analysis: Studies of certain skeletal remains, such as the Luzia Woman found in Brazil, have shown features that some anthropologists argue resemble those of African or Australoid populations rather than Native American populations.

8. Accounts from Early European Explorers: Some early European explorers, such as Vasco Núñez de Balboa, reported encountering dark-skinned peoples in the Americas upon their arrival.

9. Cultural Similarities: Some researchers point to cultural parallels between African and American civilizations, such as pyramid building, similar religious practices, and iconography, as potential evidence of contact.

10. Presence of Black peoples in Asia, Australia and the Pacific. If Black people can be found in as far as the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia many Islands in the Pacific, why can’t they be found in the Americas? I mean it makes no sense for the Americas to be the exception right?

11. Genetic Studies: While controversial and not universally accepted, some genetic studies have indicated the presence of haplogroups in Native American populations that are also found in African populations, suggesting ancient intermingling.
