Numerous artifacts have been recovered from Muweilah. Some of these are featured below. In addition to formal analysis of these artifacts, an important component of research focusses on the geochemistry of both ceramics and softstone vessels to determine provenance. You can read more about the latter here.
Of equal importance to the pots and bronzes etc. are the massive quantities of animal bones thus far recovered from the site. Under study by Professor Margaret Uerpmann (University of Tübingen), the nearly quarter of a million animal bones thus far studied provide an unparalleled insight into the economy of a prehistoric Arabian settlement. One of the most important, but certainly not the only, conclusions thus far reached is that domesticated camel was an important component of the diet (you can read more about that here). Together with the artifactual evidence seen below this indicates that the use of the dromedary camel was very important at Muweilah. This is an issue which we will continue to investigate in the future with bioarchaeological research at Muweilah and nearby sites.
