Al Magar Civilization of Southwestern Saudi Arabia the Land of Joktan Where Horsemanship Tradition Originated


Climate change (the end of the Ice Age) is evidenced at the extremely interesting archaeological sites of the Al Magar Civilization, east of the Red Sea coastal mountains in the very arid Najd region of central Saudi Arabia, there the progeny of Heber’s son Joktan settled during the Ice Age to build that civilization which used horses extensively in daily life, where streams flowed, now one of the driest places on earth.
