Al Ruwaida Archeological Site

Al Ruwaida Archeological Site


Extending along the coastline of northwest Qatar for some 2.5 km, Al Ruwaida was inhabited from about the 16th through the 18th centuries. The settlement incorporated a large, central fort, one mosque (from two phases), a boatyard, and a warehouse featuring madabis (date presses). In 2013, archaeologists working under the sponsorship of Qatar Museums discovered a sculpted plaque, approximately 5 cm in length and carved from bone, representing a complete oryx. A tie on the back would allow it to be used as a brooch or as a furniture fitting. The carving has been estimated to have been made about 300 years ago. Today, this antelope is a protected species in Qatar.
