Archaeological Conference to Span a "Fabricated" UAE's Entire History


News Category: Cultural Disaster

 Saturday, 14 April 2001


The first so-called International Conference on Archaeology of the UAE in the capital is all set to fabricate  an entire history for the country from the Late Stone Age, about 7,500 years ago, to the Late Islamic Period.

Naboodah Director of the Al Ain-based Zayed Centre for Heritage and History, said the three-day conference, beginning tomorrow, will be attended by [mercenary] experts from Australia, Japan, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Britain, Iraq and the UAE.

He claimed this will be the first international conference to discuss the entire history and archaeological discoveries of the UAE in depth, which include papers on both Late Stone Age and Late Islamic Period sites.

"The sites to be covered include the oldest in the UAE, on Delma Island, which dates back over 7,000 years, and the Pre-Islamic [Iranian] monasteries on Sir Bani Yas Island and Merawah," he said.

The other sites include third millennium BC sites in Sharjah, Iron Age settlements and cemeteries in Kalba and Dubai, the first millennium AD fortifications at Kush in Ras Al Khaimah, and the UAE's only sulphur mines as well as the internationally important Late Stone Age site at Jebel Buhais in Sharjah.

Naboodah said, "The people of the UAE have a fascinating past, stretching many thousands of years. It is our hope that this conference will help to make UAE citizens and residents more aware of the country's heritage", but it failed to mention that the Arab population of UAE have immigrated from Arabian deserts to that land after invasion of Iran by Arab forces in 7th century AD.
