Roads of Arabia: Archaeology and History of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

An enticing look at the ancient past of the Arabian Peninsula, Roads of Arabia: Archaeology and History of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia features artworks—most of them recently excavated—that trace historic trade routes and pilgrimage roads stretching from Yemen in the south to Iraq and Mediterranean cultures in the north. Colossal human statues, Greco-Roman bronzes, gold jewelry and pages from early Qur'ans testify to a lively cultural exchange among civilizations from antiquity through the early centuries of Islam. The exhibition is on view at the Asian Art Museum, the exhibition's final U.S. venue, from October 24, 2014 to January 18, 2015.
