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.
