University of Western Australia archaeologists have discovered 4,500-year-old 'funerary avenues' in Saudi Arabia lined with ancient tombs.

They said people who lived in northwest Arabia in the early to middle Bronze Age built 'funerary avenues' linking oases and pastures, bordered by burial monuments.

"Funerary avenues were the major highway networks of their day," an archaeologist said.
