Abstract:Archaeological investigations undertaken in 2005 at the site of the Mausoleum and the Tomb of False Door in the Main Stelae Field, Aksum, Ethiopia, yielded two Aksumite metal cramps and an Aksumite main entrance to the Mausoleum. Furthermore, the archaeological clearances that were undertaken on the same structures enabled the conservation of the late fourth century AD Aksumite tombs and the opening of an ambulatory to the sealed Mausoleum. This article first outlines the objectives of the investigations and the methods used, before going into more detail on the results. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
