This first volume in the World of Ancient Arabia Series presents an entirely fresh treatment of the vexed problems of the dating of the kingdoms of ancient pre-Islamic Arabia, offering a new minimal chronology for the whole peninsula. In Part One, the first chapter refines recent work on SW Arabian dates for the first six centuries AD, and lists documented dates for the Himyarite and parallel eras. The second chapter links up Egypt and Lihyan and the SW kingdoms of Main, Saba, etc., minimally within c350-0 BC.
