About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Arabic

This lavish volume celebrates the astonishing wealth of fossils uncovered in recent decades in Abu Dhabi's desert. These prehistoric findings, around seven million years in age, record a period when the region was lush, green, and teeming with diverse mammals, all now extinct. With more than one hundred full-color photographs, including reconstructions of extinct animals, One Thousand and One Fossils is both a visual delight and a unique glimpse into Arabia's ancient past.
