Saudi Arabia is still largely terra incognita, but its most remote reaches are home to some of the best rock art on the planet. Recent research h by a team of scientists and a world-class photographer has unlocked many of the mysteries contained within the ancient carvings. Dramatic scenes of hunters and their packs of dogs dispatching extinct wild bulls and other large game bring long-past events to life in amazing detail. For this Science on Tap, Sandra Olsen, KU professor of Museum Studies and archaeologist, will share her exciting adventures and important insights about Arabia’s deep cultural history.
