Scientists taking part in a two-day symposium on ‘Recent Archaeological Discoveries’, organised by the Zayed Centre for Heritage and History, also discussed the latest archaeological findings from excavations throughout the UAE.

They discussed the possibility of issuing guidelines for archaeologists of the AGCC countries and publishing a book on the symposium’s recommendations in addition to exchanging notes with official organisations and bodies responsible for archaeology and tourism throughout these countries.

The papers presented included ‘the development of tomb architecture in the Wadi Suq period in Shimal’, ‘Ras Al Khaimah, the past in the future‘, ‘Millennia-old beaches and ecosystems in Dubai Internet City’ and the results of the seventh season of excavation at Hili N pit-grave.
