Ancient Arabia lecture: Centering on the Periphery
- Tuesday 12 December 2017
- National Museum of Antiquities (RMO)
On 12 December Prof. Peter Akkermans will deliver the annual "Ancient Arabia" lecture on the path breaking project "Landscapes of Survival", entitled "Centering on the Periphery".
Come hear about the extraordinary set of archaeological remains preserved in this marginal environment. Peter Akkermans will synthesize data from archaeology, Safaitic inscriptions, and rock art to give us our first holistic image of the lifeways of the ancient pastoral populations of the Black Desert, and be sure to stick around for a lively reception afterwards!
