Co-sponsored by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. An Archaeological Institute of America Lecture.
The partnership between humans and horses goes back much further than we thought. Domestication of the horse radically transformed communication, trade and warfare and helped further an exchange of art and ideas. An important sculpture depicting a horse found in Saudi Arabia last summer shows how artistic depictions may upend prevailing theories about the use of the horse.
