Ethiopia is a crucible of human civilisation. One of the very first kingdoms to adopt Christianity as its state religion in the 4th century AD, Ethiopia evolved a distinct religious and cultural tradition which gave rise to stunning works of architecture such as the Lalibela rock churches, hewn from solid rock, the 24-metre-tall Great Stela of Axum and the 17th century Castle of Gondar, the ‘Camelot of Africa’. Join Jane Hutcheon, TV presenter and former foreign correspondent as she uncovers not just the history but also the extraordinary landscape, wildlife and stories of this ancient land.
