Docent Dorothy Gregor will present on the Roads of Arabia exhibition that will be on display from 10/24/14 – 1/18/15 at the Asian Art Museum.

Roads of Arabia will feature objects recently excavated from throughout the Arabian Peninsula. These artifacts trace the impact of ancient trade routes and pilgrimage roads stretching from Yemen in the south to Iraq and Mediterranean cultures in the north. Elegant alabaster bowls, Hellenistic bronze statues, gilded candlesticks and Egyptian blown glass testify to a lively mercantile and cultural interchange among distant civilizations spanning antiquity through the early centuries of Islam.
