Is there Truth to the Bedouin Legend of the Great River in the Desert?

The Bedouin of the southern Arabian desert have a legend about a great river in the west, and an eighth century Arabic poem talks of wild cows living in the Empty Quarter. Can it be true?

The Empty Quarter, also known as the Rub al-Khali, is the largest sand desert in the world, covering an area of 650,000 square kilometers (250,966 square miles) or around one third of the southern Arabian Peninsula. It is also one of the hottest, most arid environments on the planet with temperatures regularly above 50 C (122 F) and less than three centimeters (one inch) of rain per year.

Evidence for the Great River in the Desert

So you would be forgiven for thinking that the legend could not possibly be true…but that would be to underestimate the power of climate change, because not so long ago the desert was a very different place.
