The Past

20,000 - 2,000 years ago
Jebel Emalah


















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.
