These three objects tell the story of life on Marawah Island 8000 years ago.
The people living on the island had a healthy and prosperous life. They fished the oceans and herded sheep and goats. They also used arrows like this to hunt gazelle and other animals.
The Abu Dhabi Pearl is the earliest known pearl yet discovered in the world. Its discovery tells us that the people of Marawah sailed into the deep waters of the Arabian Gulf and dived for pearls.
They also sailed to other lands. The Marawah Vase was brought from Iraq 7500 years ago. Trade across the Arabian Gulf was thus first established. Thousands of years later, when copper was discovered in the mountains near Al Ain, the people used knowledge of these trading routes to ship copper across the ancient world.
