Archaeological excavations in Al Ain have revealed stunning new evidence on community life in the region 3,000 years ago.

Research conducted in the Hili 2 area shows how Iron Age people lived, cooked, grew crops and socialised. 

Well-preserved clay seals and ovens have been found, in addition to 3,000-year-old fingerprints of workers.
