Welcome to this week’s news about the Ancient Near East! This weekly post has the most interesting (and most of the time, the ONLY) articles or news items about anything to do with the Ancient Near East.
‘The Impossible Task of Reconstructing the Rules to an Ancient Board Game‘ (I think they could take some tips from the great Irving Finkel here)
‘Camels banned from Saudi beauty contest over Botox‘ Yes, you read that right. Whilst not about the Ancient Near East, I can’t resist a good camel story!
