Chapter Summary

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has the longest shoreline on the Red Sea extending for more than 1500km. Moreover, the Saudi Red Sea towns and settlements have been actively involved in maritime activities for millennia. Yet, maritime archaeology in the kingdom is still a developing discipline.
