  UAE History - Ancient artifacts

Humans have been making tools for most of their existence, and the museums of Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, Umm al-Qaiwain and Al-Ain all display finely manufactured flint and chert arrowheads, knives and scrapers dating back, in the earliest cases, some 7000 years. In this category we should also mention implements related to fishing. Fishnet sinkers and shell fishhooks from early sites on the coast of the Emirates attest to intensive fishing as long as humans have inhabited the shores of this region. By about 3000 B.C. we find the first implements made of copper and by about 2200 B.C. the first tools made of bronze (an alloy of copper with anywhere from 5-15% tin). Rich in copper ore, the Hajar mountains of the interior of the U.A.E. and Oman provided the raw material for an extensive metallurgical industry which flourished until the late Islamic era when foreign imports finally made it no longer economically viable. Early copper and bronze tools included spatulas, awls and needles.

The Al Ain Museum displays a number of finds from the earliest excavations at Mleiha, conducted in the early 1970’s, including a socketed copper or bronze hoe blade (all of the finds from the later excavations at Mleiha can be seen in the Sharjah Archaeological Museum). This is one of the earliest agricultural tools from the Emirates. An iron chisel or adze blade from al-Dur (Umm al-Qaiwain) was probably a wood-working implement, perhaps used in boat building. It resembles tools which can be seen in the ethnographic displays of the museums in Ras al-Khaimah, Fujairah and Dubai, where a wide range of items used in working in date gardens, in the pearling industry and in farming and household life generally can be seen.
