Vol. 42 (2012): Proceedings of the Seminar for Arabian Studies Volume 42 2012: Papers from the forty-fifth meeting of the Seminar for Arabian Studies held at the British Museum, London, 28 to 30 July 2011
The Seminar for Arabian Studies (www.thebfsa.org/seminar/) is the only international forum which meets annually for the presentation of the latest academic research in the humanities on the Arabian Peninsula (including archaeology, epigraphy, numismatics, ethnography, language, history, art, architecture, etc.) from the earliest times to the present day or, in the case of political and social history, to the end of the Ottoman Empire (1922).
The Seminar meets for three days - Thursday to Saturday - in the third week of July each year in London or another British university town. Up to 150 people attend the Seminar from all over the Middle East, Europe, and North America as well as India, Pakistan, Australia and Japan and up to 50 papers are now presented each year.
Papers read at the Seminar are published in the Proceedings of the Seminar for Arabian Studies in time for the Seminar of the following year. The Proceedings therefore contains new research on Arabia and reports of new discoveries in the Peninsula in a wide range of disciplines.
Publication and distribution were taken over by Archaeopress in 2003 and back issues are available
