Saudi Arabia’s Richest Archaeological Site Reveals A Flurry Of Mind-Boggling Discoveries Yet Again

Al-Faw which sits in a remote corner of southern Saudi Arabia is one of the richest archaeological sites in the country – it’s honestly surprising that it’s still not on UNESCO’s World Heritage List so far. But that probably won’t be the case for long as a flurry of new discoveries have been unearthed yet again in the once ancient thriving town. The Saudi Heritage Commission released their new discoveries earlier this week.

A group of Saudi and French archeologists comprised the team that excavated the site of Al-Faw – the ancient capital of the fabled Kingdom of Kindah.

The temple was discovered to the east of Al-Faw, atop Mount Tuwaiq.

Foundations of four monumental buildings have been discovered. Adding to that, Neolithic human settlements going back 8,000-years have been discovered at the site.

So yes, this could well be Saudi Arabia’s biggest archaeological discovery yet.
