Melka Kunture lies in the upper Awash valley, 50 km south of Addis Ababa, at 2000m asl. The site, discovered by Gerard Dekker in 1963, was surveyed by Gérard Bailloud in 1964. It was then systematically explored by a French mission directed by Jean Chavaillon (1965-1982 / 1993-1995), and subsequently, since 1999, by an Italian mission directed by Marcello Piperno and later by Margherita Mussi for the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. The research is carried out in agreement with the Authority for Research and Conservation of Cultural Heritage of the Ethiopian Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and with the Oromia Culture and Tourism Bureau.
