Yemen — The Fate of Archaeological Heritage

Jérémie Schiettecatte

This lecture will take place in person at ISAW. Registration is required; click through for the registration link. In the early 1970s, Yemen was emerging from a long period of isolation. Archaeological research gradually took off, making it possible to retrace the major stages in the evolution of the land of the Queen of Sheba. The monumentality of its architecture and the refinement of its arts were revealed, along with thousands of ancient monumental inscriptions. The outlines of a South Arabian civilization were gradually taking shape. Ancient South Arabia has turned out to be quite different from the misleading image of a desert Arabia roamed only by nomads.
