Jubbat Hail, in the Hail region of northeast Saudi Arabia, is on an old caravan route through the Nefud Desert.
It is one of the largest and most significant archaeological sites in Saudi Arabia, due to its rock inscriptions and carvings dating to the Mesolithic period. Some of these rock carvings show men wearing headgear, birds, monkeys, gazelles, and two animals pulling a wheeled cart.
