Introduction

In the last structure, Melka Kunture Archaeology, the lithic and faunal finds of Melka Kunture and Balchit are presented with material dated to the Oldowan (1.7 Myr), to different Acheulean phases (1.0-0.2 Myr), to the Middle and Late Stone Age (0.2 Myr-4,000 BP), and to the modern times. In the centre of the building a round table with lithic and faunal objects allows visitors to touch and better observe the technology of Prehistoric Hominids.
