In the far reaches of the Near East The recent discovery of Majan

Published: January 3, 2016
Author : خواكين ماريا كوردوبا (منسق)

Twenty years of discoveries for the Department of Ancient History, international scientific bodies and the Spanish archaeological team in Sharjah (United Arab Emirates).

  “Sargon, the king, laid in the port of Akkad the ships of Meloukha, Dilmun, and the ships of Majan.”

In the seventies and eighties of the twentieth century, our scientific teams, for the sake of humanity’s history, began to save the distant past of the Arabian Peninsula. The ancient texts of Mesopotamia seem to refer to some places when they evoked the foreign “land of Majan” with its black ships, wealth and people.

From the mid-1990s until today, research focused on the Oman Peninsula has finally revealed the life, environment and ancient history of Majan. In the central region of that country, where the Emirate of Sharjah is currently located, many important archaeological discoveries took place.

This exhibition works to reveal the recovered image of a forgotten era, thanks to the efforts of many international archaeological teams, the Sharjah Archaeology Authority (SAA) in the Emirate of Sharjah, and the Spanish archaeological team at Autonoma University in Madrid.

Studies in ancient Arab coins in the Arabian Peninsula

Published: November 29, 2022

Coins are considered historical, cultural, and commercial documents, and their study will possibly shed
an important light on the conditions of the regions of the Arabian Peninsula during the past historical
periods, which are still waiting for more studies and research in this field. Describing and analyzing the
shapes, symbols, and inscriptions appearing on them provides valuable information about the people
who produced them, the societies that traded them, their political systems, their religious beliefs, their
economic livelihood, their commercial activities, and their international relationships.

Fatimids Mosques

Author : عبد الله علي الرحيبي

This book discusses mosques built during the Fatimid era in Mahdia,
Sirte, Ajdabiya, and Cairo, some of which remained intact and some
of which were altered, and it is based on a treatise originally titled
(Fatimid Mosques, Their History and Architecture). Given the
significance of the mihrab in mosque architecture, I included an
article titled “The Rightness in the Relationship Between the Mosque
and the Mihrab” that opened the book’s pages which were the
introduction pages of the book.

Early Abbasid Era in the Emirate of Sharjah

Published: August 10, 2022
Author : Eisa Yousef

In the introduction to his book, the author discussed the concept of studying archaeological finds and the importance of placing them within the geographical, historical, and cultural contexts of the region in which they were discovered, as well as the role of heritage sources in the process of analyzing and studying the discovered antiquities. He devoted an important part of his research to discussing the issue of Arab, Islamic, and foreign coins that were in circulation at the time, in terms of the region’s political, practical, social, and economic importance, after being presented in detail to the review and discussion of various pottery and stone finds.

The author focused on the Abbasid group of dirhams, which were discovered inside a small Abbasid-style glazed jar. They were nine silver dirhams and one copper fil. It also contained five small square copper pieces of varying weights. These silver coins date back to the first Abbasid era, which dates back to 123-218 AH (750-833 AD).
