The Origins of Doha Project aims to explore the foundations and historic growth of Doha, its transformation to a modern city, and the lives and experiences of its people, through a combination of archaeological investigation, historical research and oral testimony. It is based at UCL Qatar and is supported by the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) and Qatar Museums Authority (QMA). The research was made possible by NPRP grant no. 5-421-6-010 from the Qatar National Research Fund (a member of Qatar Foundation).
