Archaeological exploration of the Arabic Peninsula is not a new phenomenon, but only in the last two decades or so, has it received the scholary attention it deserves. Surveys are now taking place in the entire region, and new excavations have begun in almost every country on the peninsula. This collection of articles on Arabian archaeology takes its place among many of the recent works on the subject, and the articles presented here contributes with both materials and ideas to the field of study. Contributions range from palaeography and prehistory to the Islamic conquest.
