Summary

A Franco-Ethiopian research team is attempting to understand the complex past of Lalibela, located in Ethiopia, one of the most important Christian sites in Africa. The aim of this partnership is to identify the progressive stages of excavation of the eleven churches on the site in order to study the history of Lalibela throughout its existence.
Alongside the archaeological excavations, a digitisation project is underway. Engineers are working on the internal and external 3D modelling of the site, with the aim of protecting and preserving it.
