2017 Excavations Begin at Fuwairit

With the permission of Qatar Museums, the 2017 fieldwork season of the Origins of Doha and Qatar project has begun. This year we are continuing our investigation of Fuwairit, an archaeological site on the northeast coast of Qatar, about an hour north of Doha. This year we hope to uncover evidence of the multiple phases of occupation of the site to help us understand how the town was built and rebuilt over the years.

We are very busy this year with several open trenches, a documentary team, and school visits to site. Check back for updates about our progress!
