Jebel Hafit Tombs
The Jabel Hafit Tombs (or Jebel Hafeet Tombs) are 5,000 year old domal-beehive tombs composed of stacked natural and edged stones. The tombs belong to the Hafeet Period (3200 to 2700BC). There are approximately 500 tombs scattered around the foot of the mountain. As many as ten individuals were originally buried in any particular tomb. Bronze objects, soapstone vessels, and beads of later date were also found in some tombs suggesting they remained in use into the Iron Age.
