What life was like thousands of years ago in the Arabian Peninsula?


Meet Professor and anthropologist, Dr. Joy McCorriston, and learn about what life was like thousands of years ago in the Arabian Peninsula. Hear about her experiences in #Yemen and #Oman doing #archeology. What can knapped stones, graffiti, animal bones, and more, tell us about how people lived their lives? Dr. McCorriston sheds light on how people made social ties, how groups shared resources, and what technologies people created to get what they needed from their environments. Some of these practices are found throughout the world, not just in the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula.
