Ethiopia: The Mystery of Phallic Stones

Several thousand unmistakably phallic-shaped monoliths are scattered throughout southern Ethiopia. To date, these imposing stone pillars have only been studied by a handful of French researchers. An expedition sets off to carry out major archaeological excavations on this exceptional megalithic heritage, left by a civilization totally unknown to historians.
