Inscriptions on the rocks of the Hama cultural area in Saudi Arabia are replete with a number of ancient scripts

An archaeological site in the Hima region, southwest of Saudi Arabia, has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The site abounds with treasures of ancient rocks that have been engraved with artistic representations representing hunting works, animals and plants, and an aspect of the way of life that was known in that region about seven thousand years ago.

In the heat of an old road, caravans of merchants and pilgrims came from the south of the Arabian Peninsula, heading north and back, and the caravans limped in a fever to draw from the fresh water of their wells, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

The Hama Cultural District is the sixth site to be added by UNESCO to the World Heritage List after the sites of: Mada’in Saleh, the Turaif neighborhood in the old Diriyah, Historic Jeddah, the rock arts in the Hail region, and the Al-Ahsa Oasis.
