Coined a living museum, AlUla is a UNESCO World Heritage recognised location, with a rich cultural history featuring untouched landscapes, architectural feats and once-in-a-lifetime experiences for explorers. This documentary will provide Australian travellers with an impressive visual insight into the landscape of the region and its deep historical significance, which is waiting to be explored by Australian travellers when international travel resumes.

Narrated by award winning Jeremy Irons, The Architects of Ancient Arabia journeys into Saudi Arabia’s deeper past, following teams of leading international and Saudi archaeologists and a local historian as they reveal new wonders in the previously unexplored land. This new one-off documentary The Architects of Ancient Arabia is premiering Wednesday 31 March at 10:25pm.

Narrated by Academy Award®, Tony Award®, Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award winner Jeremy Irons, The Architects of Ancient Arabia journeys into Saudi Arabia’s deeper past, following teams of leading international and Saudi archeologists and a local historian as they reveal new wonders in the previously unexplored land. Using multiple modern technologies to record tens of thousands of sites, they choose some to explore in greater detail, to begin piecing together a new chapter in the story of human civilisation. A team of Australians join the research expedition including archaeologists Professor David Kennedy, Dr Melissa Kennedy and Dr Hugh Thomas.

AlUla is a largely unknown oasis valley in the vast desert of the North West Arabian Peninsula, once a prosperous and important crossroad on the incense route and home to 3,000 years of powerful successive civilisations. Some of the most important survey and excavation work in modern history has been taking place in the region, revealing the deep past of AlUla.

Specialist teams are seeking to decipher the activities associated with ancient stone structures they are excavating across the county surrounding the AlUla oasis, with their findings aiding to deepen the historical legacy of the country, and of ancient Arabia. In the documentary, the archeologists unearth evidence for an ancient ritual, completely unexpected and extraordinary as they continue to piece together AlUla’s rich history in time to welcome guests from around the world.
