Agawmeder information

Agawmeder (Amharic: አገው ምድር) was a historical state and region in the northwestern part of Ethiopia. Its most likely etymology is from Agew (አገው ägäw), a people living in the area, plus meder (land), thus meaning "Land of the Agaw".[1] The western neighbor of Gojjam, it was located where the Agew Awi Zone now lies.
