More papers dealing with the UAE ancient history and culture were presented on Monday at the International Conference on UAE Archaeology currently under way in the capital. The four-day conference has been organised by the Emirates Centre for Heritage and History, part of the Emirate Heritage Club, in collaboration with the Ministry of Information and Culture.



Dr Sabah Jassim of Sharjah Archaeology Department spoke about UAE culture in the third millennium BC. "New findings have proven the existence of a culture in the Mudam Plain in Sharjah dating back to 3,000 BC. They included three tombs similar to those found in Jebel Hafit," he said. Jassim also touched on the contents of tombs discovered recently at Jebel Buhais and Meleiha sites and their significance to UAE history. Dr Soren Blau from Australia National University presented a paper on burying practices in 3,000 BC. She gave an in-depth analysis of a tomb belonging to the Umm Al Nar Civilisation, along with a description of the architecture and commodities of that era. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
