Heritage & Museums
Although the early history of Dubai is not very well documented,
archaeological discoveries suggest that, as long as 4000 years ago
small fishing communities lived along the coast of the Arabian Gulf on
the site of modern Dubai. In recent years, archaeologists have
unearthed hundreds of artifacts that point to civilized settlements
dating back to the third millennium B.C. Dubai’s main archaeological
sites are in Al Sufoh and Jumeirah. These historic findings have been
carefully preserved and the artifacts are now permanently housed in the
archaeological section of Dubai Museum. Dotted around Dubai are a
number of historic buildings and sites that offer a glimpse of a bygone
era such as the Al Fahidi Fort, Sheikh Saeed’s House, and the Bastakiya.
