Archaeologists in Umm Al Quwain, one of the United Arab Emirates, have discovered a variety of treasures ranging from 5,000 year old pottery, to bronze spreadheads from the first millennium BC.

The team also found a number of iron tridents, known to have been used in the first century BC. Some agate beads and fish bones from the same period were also found. The national team is trying to ascertain the source of the finds.

The ministry is working in cooperation with the Department of Archaeology and Heritage in the emirate and aims to turn Al Dour into a tourism destination.
