Living in Madā'in Sālih/Hegra during the late pre-Islamic period. The excavations of Area 1 in the ancient city

Abstract : This paper presents the results of the excavations undertaken in Area 1 of ancient Hegra (modern MadāΜin СāliΉ) in north-western Saudi Arabia. The four seasons conducted from 2008 to 2011 in the residential area have revealed a long sequence of domestic occupation between the fifth–fourth century BC and the fourth–fifth century AD. The interdisciplinary study of the archaeological and bio-archaeological material has identified different activities performed in this area during its latest phase of occupation and has dated the abandonment of the ancient city.
