In A Bid To Discover New Archeological Sites, KSA And Japan Sign New Deal

By Yehia Darwish

The Heritage Commission in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia signed an agreement with Japan’s Waseda University to conduct future archeological excavations at Al-Hawra in Tabuk’s Umluj governorate.

Japanese archeologists have worked there previously and already uncovered a number of sites and dwellings cut into the mountains dating back to 2,000 BC.

Teams from both countries are set to continue working together for another five years to uncover the secrets of the lost civilization in the northwestern part of the country.

It is believed that the site was home to the Madyan peoples who were mentioned in the Torah and Quran where Prophet Shoaib was sent to guide them.

Are these sites the ones mentioned in religious texts? Whatever the findings, Saudi Arabia is set to push for further tourism development of the area in line with the Saudi Vision 2030 masterplan to encourage new sources of revenue and higher living standards for KSA.
