Abstract

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has the longest shoreline on the Red Sea extending for more than 1500km. Moreover, the Saudi Red Sea towns and settlements have been actively involved in maritime activities for millennia. Yet, maritime archaeology in the kingdom is still a developing discipline. Nevertheless, archaeological projects that took place along the Red Sea coats, mainly in Egypt, indicated that there could be great potential for that field in Saudi Arabia, particularly with the availability of recourses for research and education.

Selected Papers of Red Sea Project VI
This volume contains a selection of fourteen papers presented at the Red Sea VI conference held at Tabuk University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 2013. It sheds light on many aspects related to the environmental and biological perspectives, history, archaeology and human culture of the Red Sea, opening the door to more interdisciplinary research in the region. It stimulates a new discourse on different human adaptations to, and interactions with, the environment.
