During a meeting with the Director of the Department of Archaeological Surveys and Excavations with Dr. Seth from the University of Durham in Britain, the results of the archaeological excavation will continue until the end of this month. The archaeological site includes furnaces dating back to the fifth century AD, and burials from the third and first millennium BC.

Earlier in January this year, a large settlement dating back more than 4,000 years was discovered in Oman’s Wilayat of Rustaq, South of Al Batinah Governorate.

The sophisticated settlement included a large number of huge buildings and burial sites and was discovered in the Al Tekha area, located on the edge of the Al Hajar Mountains, by the joint archaeological mission between the Archaeological Department of the College of Arts and Social Sciences at Sultan Qaboos University, and the Italian University of Pisa, under the supervision of the Ministry of Heritage and Tourism.
