Ethiopia and the Missing Link in African History
The Ancient Empire of Ethiopia comes down to us from a very remote past–from the Ancient of Days with the richest heritage in history. Ethiopia was considered by the Greeks to be home of the Gods and retreat of the Muses. A land of fertile fields, with river beds of diamonds with mountains of gold and 'Isles of the Blessed'. The land of the setting sun where the giant Atlas was compelled by the Olympian Jove to prop up the heaven upon his head and shoulders. This vast desert which lies south of the Atlas known as the Sahara is called by the Moors 'The Garden of Allah.'
