Middle East Hajar Mountains Rock Art Petroglyphs
The Rock Art of the Hajar Mountains
The Middle East Rock Art Archive represents the archaeological and anthropological research of the region now known as the Middle East, a vast area lying at the juncture of Eurasia and Africa and of the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean. The Archive was initiated by the research carried out in 1998 in the Hajar Mountains of eastern Dubai, United Arab Emirates by Stephen A Green, Gary R. Feulner and Adam Green. The Rock Art of the Hajar Mountains section is based on the authors' original field notes, available in pdf format. The data represents one of the largest surveys on the rock art petroglyphs and boulder art of the United Arab Emirates, as well as one of the most diverse.
The Rock Art Petroglyphs of Iran section is based on the research of avocational Iranian archaeologist Mohammad Naserifard, who has travelled throughout Iran, documenting many of the country's numerous prehistoric rock art sites.

Ancient Geometry
Carrying out research in the same country, but with a different emphasis, Dr. Azhideh Moqaddam of Tehran University examines Ancient Geometry in relation to prehistoric art, mathematics and the ancient writing systems of the Old World in the Sind valley, Iran and Mesopotamia.
The Rock Art of Saudi Arabia section is based on the research of Dr. Majeed Khan, in association with the Antiquities Department of the Saudi Commission for Antiquities and Museums, examining rock art sites across the Saudi peninsula, from prehistoric art to nomadic art, including the archaeological site of al-Magar and the Arabian horse sculptures.
The Rock Art Gallery is a collection of images representing prehistoric rock art, Palaeolithic motifs, geometric symbols and ancient occupation sites from across Saudi Arabia.
It is the hope of the Foundation that as further research of this kind is carried out in the Middle East, a fuller understanding of the rock art, as well as the prehistoric cultures, will generate a greater awareness of this cultural legacy, which in turn will ensure its preservation.
