WHEN January 29, 2019
6:30-8 PM WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center Part of "Science, Heritage and The Past" WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

The seabed around the world has proven to be an archaeological treasure trove, consistently yielding items that are rewriting history books and filling museums. The Arabian Gulf has one of the longest and richest seafaring traditions anywhere in the world. Prior to 8,000 years ago sea levels were considerably lower and the land to the north of the Emirates was an open and potentially fertile landscape. This landscape is an untapped resource, offering the prospect of not only ancient wrecks, but discoveries from the distant prehistoric submerged landscape of Abu Dhabi. This talk delves into the intricacies surrounding the Arabian Gulf as it relates its' position as an archaeological treasure.
