QM unearths new archaeological site in Asaila Jan 13, 2021 0 1005 12345 The Department of Archaeology at Qatar Museums (QM) has discovered new archaeological remains in Asaila, located in west of Qatar, approximately 12 km east of Umm Bab. The initial excavation took place at a burial mound, dating back between 300 BCE and 300 CE. Although the tombs themselves had been robbed already in antiquity, a team from the Department of Archaeology was able to uncover the remains of important individuals, who were buried on top of a plateau in large and carefully constructed burial mounds together with personal items such as a sword, metal tools and a golden earring. The human remains will be subject to advanced paleoanthropological and molecular analyses, including the study of ancient genetic material. The process is aimed at understanding the migration and dietary habits of people who lived in this region in ancient times.
