Know the UAE: Archaeological site found south of Dubai shows key aspects of life in Iron Age Arabia

06-Nov-2016 :

Dubai: Did you know that an ancient civilization that goes back more than 3,000 years was found in Dubai?

Set in a spectacular desert landscape south of modern emirate, the site known as Saruq Al Hadid is an archaeological treasure trove first discovered in 2002 by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The site is an important archaeological find which shows that Dubai did not become a centre of trade only in the 21st century, or after the development of the Dubai Creek.

The Saruq Al Hadid site, preserved by the dunes that covered it for millennia before being discovered, provides ample evidence that the emirate had strong trade links with a wide swathe of the ancient world — from Egypt to the Indian subcontinent, dating as far back thousands of years.
