12 November - 27 February 2011. CaixaForum presents an overview of 6,000 years of Saudi Arabian history with its display of some 300 artefacts including bronze, jewellery, glass, statues, manuscripts and textiles.

Archaeological excavations in the Middle East since the early 19th century have begun to shed light on the region's wealth of treasure, which archaeologists believe could rival that of Egypt or the eastern Mediterranean.

With large tracts of land still to investigate, recent studies in the region have revealed the remnants of lost fortified cities, temples, palaces adorned with frescoes, giant sculptures and precious jewellery in tombs, offering experts ample hope of many more such finds in the future.
