From the earliest human occupation 7,000 years ago to the present day, explore the storied history of AlUla and the archaeological research conducted there through the pages of “AlUla Wonder of Arabia” by Gallimard.
ALULA, WONDER OF ARABIA
Located in northwestern Saudi Arabia, AlUla is a spectacular natural and archaeological region. Nearly 30 years of archaeological research conducted by Franco-Saudi teams has been compiled to create this incredible book. Beginning with the cult practices of the ancient pre-Islamic kingdoms and the majesty of the Nabataean rock-cut tombs, Gallimard then explores the birth of the Arabic script. The book then looks at the lives of pilgrims who stopped in AlUla on their way from Damascus to Medina and finally the construction of the Hijaz railway, tracing the region's entire history.
