The Marawah Vase: Archaeological Discovery of the Gulf

As part of Roads of Arabia: Archeological Treasures of Saudi Arabia, join us in a lecture with Dr Mark Beech, who will bring us on the journey of how the Marawah vase was unearthed in one of the oldest villages discovered in the United Arab Emirates. The vase was originally manufactured in Southern Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq) and was traded down the Arabian Gulf. What was the vase used for? How did it arrive here? What was life like at that time in the region? Louvre Abu Dhabi hosts The Marawah Vase: Archaeological Discovery of the Arabian Gulf to discuss these interesting finds.

تزامناً مع معرض “طرق التجارة في الجزيرة العربية: روائع آثار المملكة العربية السعودية عبر العصور”، انضموا إلينا في جلسة حوارية مع الدكتور مارك بيش، الذي سيطلعنا على كيفية انتقال هذا الإناء الذي صُنع جنوب بلاد الرافدين، أي العراق حالياً، قبل 8000 سنة ليتم اكتشافه أخيراً في أقدم القرى في دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة.
