Indeed, the book under consideration represents the outcome of a conference held in Abu Dhabi in 2009 that marked only the 50th anniversary of the commencement of archaeological research in that Emirate by a team of Danish archaeologists. In that 50 years, however, the pace of archaeological research in the UAE has intensified and revealed an astonishing cultural heritage that stretches from the Palaeolithic to the recent past.Foreword (Abdul Rahman Al Owais Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development).
