Remains of 7,500-year-old man found in UAE

Archaeologists in the United Arab Emirates have found the remains of a 7,500-year-old man, the oldest skeleton found in the country. The skeleton was found buried on Marawah island, some 100 miles off the coast of the capital Abu Dhabi. The man was aged between 20 and 40 years. It was buried facing east, indicating a sophisticated community lived on Marawah, WAM quoted Peter Hellyer, executive director of the Abu Dhabi Islands Archaeological Survey, as saying. Excavations at the island, which have lasted several years, have also unearthed remains of buildings and utensils.
