Madâ'in Sâlih Archaeological Project. Report on the 2016 Season

Abstract : This is the 2016 report (7th season) of the Madâʾin Salih (ancient Hegra) Archaeological Project. Madâʾin Salih is a pre-Nabataean, Nabataean and Roman site at the southern end of the Nabataean kingdom and the Roman province of Arabia. The volume (132 pages) contains reports by various authors on one of the gates of the rampart (Area 35), on the Roman fort excavated in the southern part of the city (Area 34), on the Nabataean sanctuary IGN 132 (Area 6), and on the residential unit excavated southwest of the latter. It also contains important study reports on the pottery, the so-called "owls of Hegra", which correspond to a Hellenistic period coinage from the Hijâz, on the camel bones of the Roman fort (Area 34), on the textiles discovered in the Nabataean tombs IGN 88, 97 and 116.1. It ends with two notes on the conservation and on physiochemical characterization of corroded metal artifacts. The report will be published in a printed form by the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage in the series entitled « A Series of Refereed Archaeological Studies »
