Archeologists Constructed This Sculpture Of A Nabataean Woman In AlUla
AlUla is quite a historical place and is known to pan back thousands of years. AlUla was actually a settlement area between the pilgrimage route from Damascus, Syria to Makkah, Saudi Arabia in the 12th century. The settlers, named the Nabataean Kingdom, also known as Nabatea, were a political state that controlled many trade routes of the region.
Archeologists have been studying this region for a while and re-constructed this sculpture of a Nabatean woman
Saudi Arabia is unveiling a reconstruction of the face of an ancient Nabataean woman after several years of work by historians & archaeologist is the first of its kind, modeled on the remains of Hinat, Nabataean woman who was discovered in 2015 in a 2,000-yr-old tomb in Hegra.🧐 pic.twitter.com/0LbwPD8K6P
