Water's Draw: Ancient Arabians' Ties to Hydrological Resources, a talk by Dr. Sandra Olsen, Biodiversity Institute Curator of Archaeology.
Through the millennia, Arabian people have congregated around oases, wadis, ephemeral rain pools, and shallow lakes for their very survival. Like strands of pearls, ancient trackways and caravan routes stretch across sand seas and link one source of water to the next. Remnants of humanity, from campsites to fortresses, mark the locations that have offered up this valuable resource.
Join Dr. Olsen as she recounts her own experiences in the Arabian Desert, tracing early hunter-herders' adaptations to an extreme environment through their art. Petroglyphs, images scratched into crimson sandstone cliffs, provide a wealth of information on these prehistoric Bedouins' past struggles.
At Savannah West Apartments in Kansas City, Missouri, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
