The Land of Edom

 

The Edomite Kingdom is one of those neglected archeological topics. However, as much of Nabataea and ancient Edom overlap, we have included a special section for students of this historical period. We welcome contributions from researchers and writers, and students of this time period. Some of us here at Nabataea.net hold a special theory about the Edomites, (ie. That their early kingdom was a powerful nomadic kingdom) known to the Egyptians as the Hyksos, and in Islamic literature as "The People of 'Ad." This information is presented in Dan Gibson's book Qur'anic Geograph. Discussion of this topic can also be found on the discussion board at http://searchformecca.com

We, however, are also interested in publishing research on Edom, so if you have information, photos, or a paper you would like to see posted here please contact us. Once again all the material on this website is copyrighted. Please either contact the webmaster above or the author of the article you wish to quote for permission to use this material.
