Nud Ziba - (31)

Nud Ziba is the most substantial prehistoric mound in the area of Khatt, northern Ra's al-Khaimah. Discovered in 1968, it has been visited repeatedly by archaeologists but never excavated, largely because of the fact that it is in the midst of agricultural fields and excavation would disturb the owner of the land on which the site is located. The main mound is about 85 m wide and stands c. 1.5-2 m above the surrounding plain. Late third and early second millennium ceramics, comparable to finds made at Tell Abraq, have been picked up from a section cut into by a bulldozer, along with a single socketed copper or bronze spearhead. Iron Age pottery is also known from the site. The bulldozer cut into Nud Ziba has exposed part of a mudbrick building with burnt floors. There is no doubt that excavation at the site would be very rewarding.
