These are famous historical stories, inscriptions that tell about the TALMUDIC and NABATEAN peoples. There are many ancient rock drawings, depicting animals, people, and camel caravans, that explain the way through the desert.

Human existence in Wadi Rum dates back more than 12,000 years. It is one of the migratory routes humans took out of Africa. There are more than 20,000 petroglyphs and inscriptions along the rock formations in Wadi Rum.
