This study discusses the impact of the geographical nature of the Red Sea on the material culture of the region, especially in Aqiq, one of the most important ports in the region. This research focuses on the natural resources of that area and how ports were affected by them (e.g. the coral reefs in the surrounding environment and the prevailing climate in Aqiq). Also the paper looks at different types of material culture found in Aqiq unearthed through field work conducted in the area. This includes cemeteries, small finds, pottery, jewellery items, and other imported and local goods. Thus, it can be said that the Aqiq port was a centre of cultural interaction as reflected on its buildings, other constructions, the community in various respects and the culture products as whole.
