Description 
Tues • 12 pm • C101 • Gregg Jamison, "Archaeological Excavations at Ras-Al Hadd,
Sultute of Oman"
Recent archaeological excavations in the Sultanate of Oman have uncovered new evidence of the region's culture and long-distance trade during the third Millennium BCE. This presentation highlights recent discoveries at the important site of Ras Al-Hadd that were made during the 2017-18 field season. These discoveries, along with others in the region, are providing new insights into what life was like nearly 5,000 years ago, and how the people living there were connected with those in distant places, including urban civilizations of the Indus Valley and Mesopotamia.
