Date Discovered

DRONE, Sony A7III, Faro S70: MLH-7 Monumental and Subterranean Tombs, Mleiha Archaeological Center, Sharjah

The excavated part of a large graveyard located south of the Mleiha fort. The types of tombs and the findings which have been unearthed at MLH-7 suggest the site was in use from the 2nd Century BCE to the 1st Century CE. Monumental tombs were discovered here. Tombs share a distinct architectural design with a large square or rectangular shaped pit dug 2m to 3m deep forming the burial chamber. Tomb towers were usually around 2.5m – 3m tall and constructed from square or rectangular gypsum bricks, then topped with a crenulated frieze and coated with gypsum plaster. There are also subterranean tombs, a rectangular pit surrounded by two or three rows of mud bricks over which stone slabs were placed.
