Excavations and archaeological studies in Duqm

The Department of Excavations and Archaeological Studies of the Ministry of Heritage and Culture carried out a number of excavations.

For example, excavations carried out in the summer of 2006 on Bahla Fort (the Casbah), revealed four underground chambers beneath the fallen rubble from the original walls of the fort surrounding the site of the excavation. During the latest season, a survey was carried out on a Stone Age site in the Wusta region. The Swiss mission, which began surveying the Huqf and the Duqm areas in the Wusta region in 2007, is aiming to explore the Sultanate’s early Stone Age period on the basis of flint fragments scattered over the site and dating back over 5 thousand years. The survey produced 230 sites.

The Ministry of Heritage and Culture carried out an exploratory dig on the site of Bait Al Maqham Fort in the wilayat of Bausher, which revealed the remains of the walls of a rectangular room with an oven in its centre which is thought to have been used for cooking.
