Join Aramco Services Company for two events focused on the human innovation of mobility. The domestication of horses allowed humans to travel vast distances, bringing about enormous changes in society. This apparently first occurred in the Arab world, millennia earlier than previously thought. You’ll have the opportunity to hear up-to-the-minute news about a recent exciting new discovery in Saudi Arabia at a lecture by Dr. Carolyn Willekes of the University of Calgary, a specialist in the unique area of equine archaeology.

Families and children will enjoy a talk especially devised for them about horses and their important role in the nomadic culture of the Bedouin world. Following the talk, they will then travel throughout the Museum of Fine Arts to search for depictions of horses in Art.

This series of events coincides with the Aramco-sponsored exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston: Roads of Arabia: Archaeology and History of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Dec. 19 – March 9, 2014.
