Somalia’s First Female Archaeologist – Sade Mire

CNN highlights Somalia’s first female archaeology – Sade Mire.

Sade fled Somalia in the wake of genocidal civil war in the 1980s, returning to her country of birth only a few years ago. She has since uncovered and brought to light Somalia’s precious and little understood prehistoric peoples – including rock art more than 5,000 year old.
