Abstract

FAY-NE15 is an aceramic stratified site of the fifth millennium BC (Late Neolithic) in the central region of the Emirate of Sharjah (UAE) with a graveyard and a domestic area. Animal remains indicate an economy based on herding sheep, goats, and cattle. To date excavated parts of the graveyard are badly preserved. The dwelling area has well-preserved stone structures. Radiocarbon dates cover the period between c.4200 and 4900 cal. BC. While representing the same culture as BHS-18, slight differences in the adornments — including a pendant made of dugong ivory — indicate deviating group identities.
