This Ona urban culture is believed to have been among the earliest pastoral and agricultural communities in the region.
Artifacts at the site have been dated to between BC and BC, contemporaneous with other pre-Aksumite settlements in the Eritrean and Ethiopian highlands during the mid-first millennium BC.
The polity existed during the 10th to 5th centuries BC. Given the presence of a massive temple complex at Yeha , this area was most likely the kingdom's capital.
The realm developed irrigation schemes, used plows , grew millet , and made iron tools and weapons. This lasted until the rise of one of these polities during the first century, the Kingdom of Aksum , which was able to reunite the area.
The Kingdom of Aksum was a trading empire centered in Eritrea and northern Ethiopia. According to the medieval Liber Axumae Book of Aksum , Aksum's first capital, Mazaber, was built by Itiyopis, son of Cush.
The Kingdom used the name "Ethiopia" as early as the 4th century. The Aksumites erected a number of large stelae , which served a religious purpose in pre- Christian times.
One of these granite columns, the Obelisk of Aksum , is the largest such structure in the world, standing at 90 feet 27 metres.
Christianity was the first world religion to be adopted in Eritrea and the oldest monastery in the country Debre Sina monastery was built during the 4th century.
It is one of the oldest monasteries in Africa and the world. Originally located in the village of Ham, it was moved to an inaccessible location on the edge of a cliff below the Ham plateau.

They reportedly built the first African mosque , that is the Mosque of the Companions, Massawa. The kingdom is mentioned in the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea as an important market place for ivory , which was exported throughout the ancient world.
Aksum was at the time ruled by Zoskales , who also governed the port of Adulis. After the decline of Aksum, the Eritrean highlands were under the domain of Christian Kingdom of Medri Bahri, ruled by Bahri Negus.
The first Westerner to visit Eritrea was the Portuguese explorer Francisco Alvares in In his books we have the first description of the local powers of Tigray, the kingdom of Axum and Barnagais the lord of the lands by the sea .
The coast of present-day Eritrea, was the one that guaranteed the connection to the region of Tigray where the Portuguese had a small colony, and therefore the connection to the interior Ethiopian , allies of the Portuguese.
In , the Afar leader Kedafu, established the Mudaito Dynasty in Ethiopia, which later also came to include the southern Denkel lowlands of Eritrea, thus incorporating the southern denkel lowlands to the Sultanate of Aussa.
The Ottomans had succeeded in conquering the northeastern present-day Eritrea for the next two decades, an area which stretched from Massawa to Swakin in Sudan.
