Att.Editors: The following item is from the Emirates News Agency (WAM)

UMM AL QAIWAIN,Jan 12 (WAM) - The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Umm Al Qaiwain Archaeology and Heritage Department began its archaeological excavation of a new local archaeological site, known as, "Umm Al Qaiwain 36," with the participation of the French Archaeological Mission.

Aliaa Al Ghafly, Director-General of the Department, stated that the project is in line with the local governmentís strategy to encourage archaeological excavations in the emirate, as well as to preserve its traditional heritage as national treasures and showcase the regionís civilisation and history.

She noted that Umm Al Qaiwain has a rich and diverse heritage dating back thousands of years while the new siteís history goes back to the Neolithic period. The site is located in Mishri on a sandy hill, which was an ancient fishing settlement, she added.
