A new chapter on the material heritage of the Nabataean culture is opened in this book. The clay lamps, and the artificial lighting they provided, prove that daily activities in this prominent proto-Arabic kingdom did not cease after sunset or in dark environments. The studied items shed light on the different cultural aspects of the Nabataean society, which had been in close contact with the contemporaneous world of the Mediterranean Sea and the Arabian Peninsula.
