Saudi Arabia/Germany: Roads of Arabia

 

The “Roads of Arabia” exhibit at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin has more than 4000 artifacts on display.  The exhibit is an excellent opportunity for those who are not in the Kingdom to learn about Saudi Arabia, its history and some of its treasures.  Saudi Arabia has a legacy that started well before oil was ever discovered in the Kingdom.

This short video clip gives a preview about the “Roads of Arabia” exhibit.

  1. It is wonderful to see these things in a Museum. It is my hope that one day Saudia will welcome tourists, though I have heard that some goes on now under certain circumstances.

    I know a physicist who was asked to accompany a University team there to do Archaeological study, because he had developed a special underground imagining system similar to ground penetrating Radar. He declined because he is a Jew, and he thought he would not be safe there.
