After sixteen international shows, Roads od Arabia. Treasures of Saudi Arabia debuts in Rome at Museo Nazionale Romano. The exhibition collects in the halls of Baths of Diocletian the most important archaeological finds and documents from Saudi Arabia: from the first human Neolithic settlements to the 20th century. The catalogue, edited by Alessandra Capodiferro and Sara Colantonio, presents a rich array of in-depth essays on the Saudi archaeological world in relation to the Greek-Roman one and with a focus dedicated to the Baths of Diocletian, site of the exhibition. This volume is a useful tool to discover the many archaeological sites, Arab and Islamic, included in the UNESCO World Heritage list, and the magnificent treasures that they contain: from the examples of rock art found throughout the territory (from the “Camel Site” to Tayma and Tarut) up to the large oases in the desert (Tayma, Qurrayah, Ayn Jawan, Dedan), from the ancient caravan cities (Qaryat al-Faw) to the kingdom of the Nabateans, up to the Islamic period and the birth of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
