Near Abu Dhabi is the island of Umm al-Nar. In the third millennium BC, there was a village with stone houses on the island. This is evidenced by 50 stone tombs, which are located on a small rocky plateau. They are large circular rooms decorated with carved reliefs depicting animals.
Beads, ceramics, copper weapons from India, Syria and India have been found on this island, indicating a well-developed, for that time, the market economy. It is also noteworthy that there is no fresh water on the island, and how such a settlement appeared here is still not clear to researchers.
