To try and keep things more organized I'm now posting general archaeology updates on my Twitter account Emirates Archaeology aka @emiratesarchaeo. Please check it out and follow it! I'll try and keep this blog more for news and updates related to the book.
I'm pleased to announce that Stanfords, London's world-famous travel bookshop and the largest travel bookshop in the world, is now stocking Beyond Dubai ! Their shop at 12-14 Long Acre, Covent Garden, is a shrine to travel literature and maps of all kinds and well worth a visit. Also available online at www.stanfords.co.uk.
Interesting article in The National this week about how former residents of the ghost town of Jazirat al Hamra, just outside of Ras al Khaimah, have started returning for an annual reunion in the last 3 years. Also gives more details of the history and why they left, plus interviews with those who used to live there. See here for the full article.
