Ghalilah - (14)

This small village is located north of Shimal in northern Ra’s al-Khaimah. Close to the hills at the base of the Hajar Mountains here are a number of tombs, several of which were investigated in the 1970s and 1980s by a series of British expeditions. In particular, a large, roughly ovoid tomb-type with a central, internal pier has come to be called the 'Ghalilah' type tomb for it was here that examples were first investigated. These date to the early-mid second millennium BC The remains of an Iron Age settlement have also been identified at Ghalilah, just east of the modern village.
