In response to a post last week in which we mentioned the book Roads of Arabia: Archaeology and History of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Harry Orenstein has alerted us to the existence of a pdf of the volume. The file (22.2 MB) can be downloaded from the website of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities using the last link on this page. It is a pdf of the English version of Roads of Arabia. The quality of the images has been degraded, so the pdf does not replace the printed book, but it does make the volume searchable and much easier to move around.
There are a few other documents as well. Here are direct links to each:
- Roads of Arabia: Archaeology and History of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (English)
- Catalogue of exhibited objects with photographs and descriptions (Arabic)
- Brochure for the Louvre showing of the “Roads of Arabia” exhibition (French, English, Arabic)
- Report on the exhibition showing at the Louvre, with photographs (Arabic)
