He was found in the Afarregion to Houach. The great French paleontologists as Yves Coppens and American paleontologists, archaeologists Ethiopian and American, made a lengthy study have studied. The existence of Afar is very old. 

 
 
The Afars communities practice ISLAMbut they also have their CUSTOMS, their TRADITIONS. They also have their EDUCATIONis also better compared to other crops because theAfar have a spirit of laws. There is a proverb Afar that says: (koo liih anii macinay kamol ayyo mogolla) which means "I accept you in my home as a brother but I do not accept that you put my authority questioned" and therefore the Afar have still not agreed to be humble, being crushed, therefore they are in conflict with the rest of ethnic groups.

The Afar Triangle of Ethiopia (11.5N, 42.5E) is a very active plate tectonic region. The region is stressed by Saudi Arabia moving away from Africa and East Africa tearing itself away from the rest of Africa. Because of the plate movements in three different directions, The Afar Triangle is stretched thin and torn resulting in a series of faults seen as long parallel valleys. There is frequent volcanic activity and lava flows occur along the faults.
