Bill Glanzman

I have four inter-related areas of current research. After three decades of fieldwork in Arabia as part of several archaeological expeditions, including the Mahram Bilqis (the sanctuary associated with the Queen of Sheba), the over-riding research focus is tracking camel caravan commerce from the Sultanate of Oman (Dhofar Project), through the Republic of Yemen (Wadi Raghwan Archaeological Project, WRAP), the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Jurash Project), and into the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. From investigating the frankincense and myrrh brought collected and shipped out along marine routes and along major caravan routes (Dhofar Project) and stored in warehouses that are now under excavation (the WRAP and the Jurash Project)--to other pieces of evidence of camel and caravan routes caravans--I am mapping out ancient trade routes, and in the process has uncovered evidence for the early history of hominid development in the area.

Using satellite mapping and both Google and ESRI base maps, as well as traditional archaeological fieldwork, I and my Research Assistants have identified what appear to be camel caravan way-stations -- finding water distribution systems, shelters and possible remains of storage structures, and numerous ancient inscriptions and petroglyphs. These way-stations, spaced along the route to provide food and shelter for thousands of camels and workers as well as a local commercial network, are beginning to reveal the role of the camel caravans and their connection to the rise of ancient states, and help resolve the location of major camel trade routes within Arabia.

My second current research focus has evolved out of the first, and focuses on the pre-Islamic and early Islamic rock art of Arabia and associated early inscriptions. These categories of information may shed light on the early development of the alphabet as well as elucidate commercial networks and issues concerning tribal customs.

During my fieldwork I have encountered numerous burial structures in the region, especially in Yemen and Saudi Arabia; these constitute my third research focus. Some of these structures likely served the caravaneers, and reveal ancient burial customs hitherto poorly known within Arabia. I and my Research Assistants are combining satellite imagery, field notes, and published data into a GIS database to investigate various inter-relationships between rock art and camel caravan routes, burial customs, and settlement locations.

My fourth current research focus is the investigation of ancient pottery, from distribution patterns to technology and use behaviour throughout the Middle East, especially Arabia and the Levant, in Nubia (modern Sudan), and Central America. My research indicates several vast commercial networks covering the entire Middle East over three thousand years, and has established several important technological developments in the history of ceramic production. I am currently investigating Nabataean painted wares as a reflection of commercial activities during the first century BC through the 3rd century AD. I and my Research Assistants and Volunteers are also investigating the technology and variability of Meroitic pottery using MRU's vast ceramic collection from the site of Meroe, once the capitol of the Meroitic Kingdom in the Sudan. We are examining the development of specific ceramic traditions, utilizing the collections of Meroitic pottery in various museums within Canada, the US and the UK. In addition, I and my Research Assistants are collaborating with a colleague's project from the University of Calgary, focusing on organic residue and pigment analyses of pottery from excavated contexts in Central America.
