Rare antiquities found along eastern Kuwaiti coast

Rare antiquities found

KUWAIT CITY, March 24, (KUNA): Kuwait’s National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) has discovered tens of cemeteries and engraved items in a popular eastern resort in the shores of the Arabian Gulf.

The new discoveries are reminiscent of a bronze age culture known as “Um Al-Nar”, which existed around 2,500 BC in the area of modern-day United Arab Emirates and northern Oman, the director of NCCAL’s department of antiquities and museums, Sultan Al-Duweish, told KUNA on Saturday.

He pointed out that the area was at one point in time a vibrant trade zone that linked vast civilizations across eastern Saudi Arabia, saying the findings are the by-product of extensive archaeological surveys carried out on unexplored landscapes. On the purpose of such endeavors, Al-Duweish noted it helps uncover the illustrious history of Kuwait, a nation whose soil has contributed immensely to the growth of human civilization. (KUNA)
