Archeology and Islam #12 - Pre-Islamic Gods

Who were the gods that were worshiped in pre-Islamic times and what can we learn from them? Video #12 in the series Archeology and Islam by Dan Gibson. For more information on the Lihyanites mentioned in this video, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lihyan. Thanks to the viewer who caught an error at 1:08. Slip of the tongue. The picture is from 570 AD, about the same time that a similar picture would have hung in the Ka’ba, not the 15th century.
