Episode 28 - The Fall of the Aksumite Empire part 1: Anbasa Wedem, Wise Regent or Cruel Usurper?

After decades of restoring the Aksumite Empire to glory, Nigusa Nagast Degna Djan is dead, and his system will not last. However, what happened to his sons is mired in unreliable histories and later propaganda. Join us for the latest episode of the History of Africa Podcast, where we attempt to dissect and navigate the historical minefield of late Aksum to determine what really happened in the Ethiopian Highlands of the 10th Century.

How do great civilizations fall? In this three part sub-season on the final fall of the Aksumite Empire, we will examine the causes, effects, and legacy of the fall of the Aksumite state.
