This groundbreaking work covers the discovery of 55 previously unknown milestones dating from the 8th to mid-9th centuries CE between Arabian cities along the Caravan Trade Route. Prominent academic, Prof. Abdullah Alkadi, has spent more than 15 years both in and out of the field researching, analyzing, and reflecting on the significance of these largely undisturbed monoliths that have guided the traveler for millennia. By incorporating historical accounts, including ancient textual narratives, along with various historical maps Prof. Alkadi has been able to finally discern the actual distance of the historic Arabian mile or mīl, a total of 1,609 meters. This discovery is unprecedented and will add yet another piece to the rich mosaic that is the heritage of Arabia.


Written in both Arabic and English, this recto-verso book illustrates the ancient caravan route in exquisite detail enhanced by vivid photographs. In addition to never-before-seen images of rediscovered milestones, desert scenes of oases, windswept ruins and unspoiled wilderness, this book includes a collection of specially commissioned artwork. These works brilliantly capture the essential quality of the natural landscapes and the ancient routes of the Arabian Peninsula. Using metallic inks and hand-drawn maps.
