As the final chapter in this year's major events, the National Museum of China (NMC) in Beijing opened an exhibition of Saudi Arabian treasures on Tuesday, which will run until March 19. It's the first time that Saudi antiques are being displayed in China.


The exhibition, titled Roads of Arabia: Archaeological Treasures of Saudi Arabia, includes nearly 500 items from 15 major museums of Saudi Arabia. They were selected from important discoveries in the country's excavation work over the past 40 years.


From the Stone Age to pre-Islamic and Islamic times to the founding of the modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the exhibition presents the traditional Arabian culture and its interactions with other cultures beyond the Arabian Peninsula.


The three-month-long exhibition is co-hosted by China's State Administration of Cultural Heritage, the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage, and the NMC.
