The large complex of archeological and paleontological sites of Melka Kunture is located about 50 km SSW of Addis Ababa (base camp coordinates 8.708° N, 38.594° E), on the banks of the Upper Awash in the Ethiopian plateau at elevations of 2000–2200 m a.s.l. (Figure 21.1); it includes numerous archeological sites that yield tens of thousands of artifacts. It has no equivalent in East Africa in documenting the full evolutionary sequence of lithic industries, from the late Oldowan to historic times, on the Ethiopian Highlands. It is also unique in providing abundant faunal remains that help reconstruct the diet of early hominins and, together with rich floral spectra, their environment at high altitudes.
