The political focus of Ethiopia appears to have steadily moved toward the southern and eastern pieces of the Tigray district (the northernmost of the nine locales of Ethiopia) in the Post-Aksumite period. A couple holy places here have been likely credited to this period, yet resulting transformations joined with the failure to get consents to lead archeological reviews make dating troublesome. It appears to be possible that holy places kept on being worked as well as slashed (cut) out of rock. A gathering of funerary hypogea (underground loads) in the Hawzien plain (in northern Ethiopia) may have been changed into temples during the post-Aksumite period. This could be the situation for places of worship like Abreha-we-Atsbeha (underneath) and Tcherqos Wukro (the compositions in these temples presumably date from a later period). As per nearby oral practices, few iron crosses date to the Aksumite or Post-Aksumite periods, yet the shortfall of solid dating techniques and the way that such crosses were delivered basically until the sixteenth 100 years, makes it incredibly challenging to confirm these cases.
By the main portion of the twelfth hundred years, the focal point of force of the Christian Realm had moved considerably further south, to the Lasta locale (a historically significant area in north-focal Ethiopia). From their capital Adeffa, individuals from the Zagwe line (from whom this period takes its name), controlled over a domain which extended from quite a bit of present day Eritrea to northern and focal Ethiopia. While restricted proof about their capital exists, the temples of Lalibela — a town which takes its name from the Zagwe ruler credited with its establishing — stand as a demonstration of the creative accomplishments of this period.
