A prominent rock outcrop located between Mileiha and al-Madam on the main north-south highway in the interior of Sharjah, Jebel Emalah has a small number of prehistoric graves clustered along its eastern slope. Excavations there in 1993 and 1994 by an Australian team revealed the existence of large, prehistoric graves, similar to those at Jebel Hafit, dating to c. 3000 BC These had been re-used repeatedly
through time, as objects datable to the third and first millennium
BC, and the sixth-seventh centuries AD, clearly demonstrated. The
latest burials, that of a man holding an iron spear, and a camel burial, date to the very end of the pre-Islamic era or the
first century of Islam. A fossil lake bed to the east of Jebel Emalah
is reminiscent of Ayn al-Faydah near Jebel Hafit as well.
