The Sinai Peninsula is a vast region encompassing some 60,000 square kilometers with hundreds if not thousands of archaeological sites, only a relatively small sample of which have been fully explored. The Sinai attracted people in ancient times and continues to do so today, whether as a dwelling place, an area rich in resources, a defensive zone, a refuge, a holy site, or simply as a land through which merchants, armies, emissaries, and others might travel from one region to another. The papers presented here contribute to a greater understanding and appreciation of the rich heritage of the Sinai Peninsula in its role as a key land bridge Africa and Asia and as a region important in its own right.
