Recent archaeological and epigraphic missions to the Arabian Peninsula have revealed far-reaching cultural interactions between its inhabitants and the great civilizations of the Fertile Crescent. This workshop will gather prominent scholars on the epigraphy and archaeology of Arabia to put into perspective these interactions in an attempt to better integrate Arabia into the history of the Ancient Near East. Talks will focus on South Arabia, the Central Arabia '€˜Arab tribes€', and the great oases of North Arabian, Taymā† and Dadan.

Registration and attendance are free.
