The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA presents:

The Ancient Universe of the Queen of Sheba: Insights from Satellite Imagery Mapping of Africa and Arabia.


The legendary Queen of Sheba known for her famous rendezvous with King Solomon in Jerusalem reportedly ruled southern Arabia and the Horn of Africa about 3000 years ago. Join us for an afternoon to rediscover the ancient geography of the southern Red Sea.

Dr. Michael Harrower, Cotsen Post-Doctoral Fellow, is a specialist in 
the archaeology of southern Arabia and the Horn of Africa.  His 
research includes pioneering applications of satellite remote sensing 
and computer mapping.

Dr. Ronald Blom, Discipline Program Manager at NASA's Jet Propulsion 
Laboratory is well-known for his leadership in satellite imagery 
analysis that led to the discovery of the ancient lost city of Ubar, a 
desert outpost for camel caravans that transported frankincense across 
the Arabian desert.
