Public Lecture: Digging in the Desert: Unearthing the Prehistory of Arabia Other events...
For the past two years, a team from the University of Western Australiaís Classics and Ancient History Discipline Group has been undertaking archaeological fieldwork in the hinterland of the desert oasis town of AlUla, Saudi Arabia. Most of the 20,000 km2 hinterland is relatively inaccessible but the isolated and dramatic landscapes surrounding the town are densely packed with spectacular archaeological remains. This project is one of several being conducted on behalf of the Royal Commission for AlUla, a broad ranging directive designed to develop the region around AlUla and to document and preserve its rich heritage.

This lecture will focus on some of the key findings of this pioneering new project, which combines traditional archaeological techniques with exciting modern technology such as 3D modelling and UAVís.
