The Jumeirah site is one of the four significant archeological sites in the country. It predates the advent of Islam in the country and numerous artefacts have been discovered such as pottery, coins, tools and other assorted items, all of which are now displayed at Heritage Village and the Dubai Museum. When you’re in the country, make sure you check out of the other sites of archeological significance such as the ancient graveyards of Al Sufooh and Al Qusais and the archaic fortress-village of Hatta set within a lush oasis in the middle of the Arabian Desert.
