This chapter includes a discussion of the Wadi Suq period, 2000 - 1600 BCE. This period followed the Umm an-Nur culture. Archaeological evidence shows the presence of luxurious gold objects and evidence of a wealth in trade for the region (p 45-46 in textbook). Prominent settlements continued in Abu Dhabi, at Tell Abraq in Sharjah, Shimal in Ras al-Khaimeh, Kalba and Hilou in the Eastern region, and at Hili in Al-Ain. We find advanced metalwork in bronze, and making of bows and arrows used for war and hunting (p 48). New forms of elaborately decorated pottery and stone vessels and beakers also appear.
