Al-Yamama, the ancient name of a region of the Arabian peninsula which is thought to have roughly coincided with today's administrative district of al-Riyadh, was from the 7th century until the end of the Umayyad caliphate the center of a diverse economy and thriving local culture. This fascinating book documents the little known historical geography and political development of al-Yamama in the pre-Islamic era, drawing together a wealth of information on its geography, ecology, population, settlement patterns, economy and history.
