The Archaeology of the Arabian Peninsula 2

The volume presents the proceedings of the second international workshop on the Archaeology of the Arabian Peninsula. Its subtitle, “Connecting the evidence”, portrayed our striving for investigating relationships and connections between different regions, materials and themes of research. The nine contributions straddle the entire expanse of the Peninsula and beyond, in order to counter the present divide in different academic disciplines. The chronological focus spans from the Pre Pottery Neolithic, the Bronze and Iron Ages down to the Islamic Middle Ages. The analyzed themes range from funerary to cultic landscapes, oasis formation and role of metallurgy for desert dwellers in state-of-the-art interdisciplinary perspectives and field case studies.
