The second part of a book published by the directorate of archaeology at the Sharjah department of culture and information threw more light on the archaeological findings in Jebel Al Buhais in the emirate. The book published in Arabic examines the artefacts excavated from the Al Buhais sites and gives more evidence on the Neolithic population who inhabited the region. The earliest human settlement to be found in the interior of south-eastern Arabia dating back to 5000 BC were discovered in Jebel Al Buhais by local and German archaeological teams.– Emirates News Agency, WAM
