The ancient writings and inscriptions represent fundamental sources from which historians and researchers have derived much of their knowledge concerning the ancient history and civilization of the Arabian Peninsula. These ancient writings and inscriptions hold significant importance, regardless of their specific subject matter. They serve as invaluable repositories, preserving details about the lives of their creators, societal customs, and interactions with neighbouring communities. Furthermore, they stand as the primary reservoirs for illustrating the traditions, beliefs, social structures, and political circumstances of their originators, along with their external relationships with neighbouring nations.
One such historical artefact is an engraving of a hunter mounted on an Arabian horse, dating back an astonishing 8000 years. This remarkable piece of art is situated in Abar Hema, within the region of Najean in southern Arabia.

Notably, it has been recognised and honoured by its inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List as the sixth Saudi site to achieve this distinction.
